 Mar10 awarded Tumbleweed Mar3 asked Less-ugly proof of infinitude of primes of form 6N+1 Mar2 awarded Popular Question Sep5 awarded Yearling Jul2 awarded Curious Apr12 comment What does an outer automorphism look like? @StevenStadnicki this should be the example that introductory textbooks provide. It is a lot more accessible than analyzing $S_6$ Apr11 awarded Nice Question Mar31 comment Isomorphism between $E_8$ lattice and lattice defined by Extended Hamming Code Just wanted to thank you again for a terrific answer. It's very helpful to beginners in algebra like myself Mar22 awarded Nice Question Feb6 answered Rolle theorem on infinite interval Feb6 revised Estimating the natural logarithm from both sides: $1/(a+1)<\ln((1+a)/a) <1/a$ added 136 characters in body Feb6 answered Estimating the natural logarithm from both sides: $1/(a+1)<\ln((1+a)/a) <1/a$ Feb6 comment Prove Cauchy Products of Series Do you know why the denominator is of the form $2N + 1$ ? Nov24 awarded Benefactor Nov22 accepted Isomorphism between $E_8$ lattice and lattice defined by Extended Hamming Code Nov17 awarded Promoter Sep5 awarded Yearling Aug6 comment Number of times you have to make a bet on a uniform distribution to expect to achieve a minimal result The problem is then that I don't know what I'm looking for. I want to know how many draws I have to make in order to be 50% sure that at least one of them will meet or exceed $c$. So I think I want the probability that the event that all draws are less than $c$ to be 50% as well. So wouldn't I want to set the CDF for $Y$ from $a$ to $c$ to be 1/2 and solve for $n$? Aug6 comment Number of times you have to make a bet on a uniform distribution to expect to achieve a minimal result So you provided the reasoning for the minimum result of $n$ trials, but since I am asking about finding $n$ to achieve an expected maximum, I should use the CDF corresponding to the event that ALL the trials are less than some value $y$?
