comment designing an equation that compares two values and returns a probability
.125 is half of .25, which is half of .5 - in the other direction, .75 is .5 plus half of .5, and .875 is .75 plus half of half of .5

...and you're right, this does exactly what I want.

Ah, I was curious about this - whether I needed two different things, one for when a > b, and one for the alternative. Also, good point about a and b being positive - they are, for my purposes.

@jack - I don't know how to answer that - if a isn't equal to b, and half a isn't equal to b... it'd depend on what a is, but that doesn't answer your question.
