@Did Thanks for clarifying.

@MarcvanLeeuwen I understand what you are saying. I am confused and will have to think about it.

@Did So to clarify. If I were reporting the total bits of the experiment (which includes reporting A, B and C), the answer would be 20? Sorry if this appears to be a dumb question.

@Did But don't you say that C has 15 bits. 10 + 10 + 15 = 35, which is more than the 10 + 10. That is what I mean by adding bits to the experiment. I am not being facetious, I am just confused.

@MarcvanLeeuwen I am not a mathematician, but a psychologist. I hope the information I have added improves the question?

@Did I am unsure as to which answer is correct. Perhaps you could provide further proof?

@Did That seems reasonable. But what do I know? That's why I asked the question in the first place...

@AndreasBlass That was my initial thought. Now I'm properly confused.

So total entropy (A + B + C) = 48?
