With no knowledge of the trigonometry of triangles, argue it like this. The question wouldn't have been asked if there wasn't a unique answer, so the answer must be the same regardless of whereabouts above the base the apex is - including the special case in which it...
The distance between the X coordinates is 2 minus -5 = 7. The distance between the Y coordinates is 2 minus 1 = 1. Those two distances are the base and height of a right-angled triangle, so to get the hypoteneuse, use Pythagoras: that gives you that the distance is the square ...
Four will ensure you've extracted at least two of the same color - but unless you turn the light on there's still no guarantee that you'll get two of the same color on you feet. Is that why it's a riddle?
Assuming that's 1, 1, 2, 3, 5... it's the Fibonacci sequence, in which X(i) = X(i-1) + X(i-2), where X(1) = X(2) = 1. So 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13 etc etc.
I think there's posibly a piece of information missing in the question as you've stated it, which is that you're only supposed to be looking at the function between the values X = -1 and X = +1, because the function is discontinuous at both of those values, and als...
I think you're asking whether a t-test is appropriate when your data consists of a binary response, i.e. a Success or a Failure, and you've got a very small number of responses. If so, the answer is no it isn't: it seems to me you ought to be looking at some sort o...
(x-5)/3 = 1, so multiply both sides of the equation by 3, and you'll get (x-5) = 3. Now add 5 to both sides of the equation and you'll get x = 3 + 5 = 8. And that's your answer.
More information is needed please. How does x in the above equation relate to either a coin or a pouch?
a) This one should state that the mean of the observed values will be approximately Normal, not that the distribution will be approximately Normal. b) I don't know what the 68-95-99.7 rule actually is, but it'll probably say something about 68%, 95% and 99.7% of the di...
