comment Conditional probability - a formal discussion
@Did - I know that there exist quite a body of knowledge in this field and I must confess that I'm no expert in that. Having said that, I guess it would be appropriate to say the definition of the term 'conditional event' was mine even though I don’t think I coined the term myself. I rather believe I picked it from various papers (see Bibliography). Anyway, it seems you're knowledgeable in this field and that you're trying to say something. If so, please, enlighten me/us by all means. I would rather appreciate your candid (and hopefully elaborate) feedback, rather than some hinting comments.

Conditional Event: An event (A) when expressed under the knowledge of another event (H) is called a conditional event expressed as (A|H) <br/> Conditional Event Representation: Representing conditional events by using more formal symbols rather than using natural languages like English.

comment Why is the probability that a continuous random variable takes a specific value zero?
First, I think the relation should be $$ P(X = x) \leq \lim_{\epsilon \downarrow 0} [F(x) - F(x - \epsilon)] $$ and NOT $$ P(X = x) = \lim_{\epsilon \downarrow 0} [F(x) - F(x - \epsilon)]$$ Secondly, can we really justify taking limit on both side! Or should we say that the relation $$ P(X = x) \leq F(x) - F(x - \epsilon)$$ must hold even when $$\epsilon$$ is infinitesimally small i.e. $$ P(X = x) \leq \lim_{\epsilon \downarrow 0} [F(x) - F(x - \epsilon)] $$.

comment Maximization of probability using partial derivatives
Thanks André, you're right - we cannot use derivatives for maximization of discrete functions.

Thanks Andre...am also in favor of 20 elements in $S_B$.

comment Order sequence of n numbers (with repetition) having 4 consecutive increasing numbers!!
@Hurkyl, Marc van Leeuwen: I thank you for your response and would like to know your views on this. Do you think this is a trivial question (that you or someone else can solve easily) or it's a challenging question (may be you would like to give a try as well given some spare time). P.S. (I'm neither a student nor this is any assignment from any course. I'm a software professional who takes interest in math.)

comment Order sequence of n numbers (with repetition) having 4 consecutive increasing numbers!!
@Hurkyl: I'm afraid that I could not guess whether you're criticizing the post or providing a hint to solution. In fact I didn't get why did you mention "no 4-sequence can begin with a digit in [N-2,N]"! To me if N $\ge $ 4+2=6 then a 4-sequence can start with N-2. Am I missing something!
