 Feb 5 awarded Good Answer Oct 27 awarded Yearling Oct 28 awarded Yearling Sep 30 awarded Explainer Sep 24 comment Prove asymptotic relationship using the limit method Explain convincingly to someone for whom it doesn't "make sense" why the limit is zero. For example, use a particular theorem you learned in class. Sep 24 comment Prove asymptotic relationship using the limit method "makes sense" probably won't get you marks in your exam. "bounds" is not sufficient either. Jul 29 comment How does arg max work in this context? Usually you have probability distributions (which replace the various $P(\cdots)$), which you then minimise, either analytically or numerically. Jul 12 comment Points in a triangle: Pigeon-hole Principle In a similar fashion to how you did it with smaller triangles. Jul 12 answered Points in a triangle: Pigeon-hole Principle Jul 2 awarded Curious Jun 28 comment Computing $\int\limits_{p}^{1}\Phi^{-1}(u)\text{ d}u$, $p \in [0, 1]$. Write the integral with the definition of $\phi$ explicitly. Jun 28 comment Computing $\int\limits_{p}^{1}\Phi^{-1}(u)\text{ d}u$, $p \in [0, 1]$. Sometimes $\int$ by parts works from a similar scenario. Try and see why not here. Jun 28 answered Find all $\lambda$ such that the set is linearly independent. Jun 23 answered Inequality for concave functions Jun 17 answered Statement about Integral Jun 17 comment Conditional Probability- Correct Score of a soccer match given player scores first I agree that these are not independent events in our intuitive understanding of the game. Therefore, as you point out, you will need to know the conditional probabilities. I.e. They cannot be derived from the given information, but must be modelled apriori. Jun 17 comment Let $f$ be a differentiable function and for all $x$ $f'(x)>x$, prove $f$ isn't uniformly continuous Nope, the constant of integration is only for indefinite integrals. But if you haven't covered it then don't worry about it for now.
