comment Ball Probability help
@user3335209 from (B) you found $\mathbb{P}[\text{same color}] = 14/45$. They must be either same or different, so $$\mathbb{P}[\text{same color}] + \mathbb{P}[\text{different color}] = 1$$

@Danny yes, $o(h)$ includes any constant factor...

@Danny $o(h)$ and $-o(h)$ is the same thing.

comment What does “Formulate the system of equations for a finite difference discretisation of the problem” mean?
What is meant by the question is, find the set of linear equations one would need to solve to get the numerical approximation to the problem you described via the method of finite differences.

comment Complicated but easy problem solving?
For the purpose of this problem, 03 is a more convenient representation than plain 3

@AndréNicolas misread the problem, was counting numbers with 3 not actual occurrences. Fixed now.

@Did is that integral not the probability that X=Y.

@ajotatxe I'm sorry, I revised a couple of times, not sure if your remark is still relevant?

+1 for thinking about the problem before posting here.

comment Conditional Probability - Bayes' Theorem
Why not apply the approach from math.stackexchange.com/questions/745646/…, I intentionally did not answer the second question, it is exactly the same, no?

comment Probability applied to economics
@ScottGoddard but the problem says that "$30\%$ of the professors who received this material adopted the book", so $(S,A) = 0.3 \times 0.8 = 0.24$!

comment Why does convexity of a function required the following
@user2654176 see the edit, this is equivalent to $f''>0$ (assume $f''$ exists).

@ScottGoddard Looks like you evaluated incorrectly. What numbers did you get for each of the 4 sets, and how did you get them?

comment Limits: $\lim_{x\to0^+}xe^\frac{-1}x$ and $\lim_{x\to0^-}xe^\frac{-1}x$
Can you please exhibit at least some attempt at solving the problem yourself? Then we can comment and give some hints. This is not the "society of people who do your homework for you."

comment What's the MLE of $\frac1\lambda$ for $f(x)=\frac1\lambda\exp − \frac x\lambda$?
Please clarify the equations in the text, they way it is phrased makes no sense to me.

comment Suppose $A, B$, and C are sets. Prove that $C\subset A\Delta B \Leftrightarrow C \subset A \cup B$ and $A \cap B \cap C = \emptyset $
@GabeCarr the phrase "the statement A ⋂ B ⋂ C must be an empty or null set" is wrong: $A \cap B \cap C$ is not a statement, and statements cannot be empty or null sets. What is meant to say is that the set $A \cap B \cap C$ is empty, i.e. $A \cap B \cap C = \emptyset$

comment What is the shortest way to write the number $1234567890$?
@DavisYoshida how do you denote $55_{64}$ by one digit -- rubik's notation is only good for base 36 (10 digits + 26 letters)?
