comment Game Theory: Variants of the Stag Hunt
Are you aware that the problem you've scanned and pasted here builds on another problem and cannot be understood on its own? In particular, the role of the "hare" remains unclear.

comment Why does the surface area of the hypersphere go to zero as the number of dimensions goes to infinity?
That's sort of not very helpful, posting nothing but the link contained in the question as an answer.

comment Why does the surface area of the hypersphere go to zero as the number of dimensions goes to infinity?
If I understand that remark correctly, you seem to have a wrong idea of what "surface area of the hypersphere" means. It refers to a "hyper-area", e.g. the "surface area" of a sphere in four dimensions is a three-dimensional volume.

Why are the surface areas any more comparable than the volumes? They're in different dimensions, as for the volumes.

comment quantum mechanics violate Bell's inequality
You gave two different ranges for $\theta_a,\theta_b$ and none for $\phi_a,\phi_b$.

comment Probability of getting a five digit number divisible by 5 but with no two consecutive digits identical
@trueblueanil: I added an answer there. It's not very elegant, and it can't be applied manually, but it solves the problem computationally for arbitrarily large sets without enumerating the combinations.

comment A deadly game of two werewolves and two townsfolk
@user254665: "The townsfolk win if at least one of the players with the most votes is a werewolf; otherwise the werewolves win." So both werewolves voting for the same townsperson doesn't make it impossible for the townspeople to win. About your second question: Yes, they know who voted for whom; I'll add that to the question; thanks for asking.

comment How to use Principle of Inclusion-Exclusion here?
@Amad27: There are two answers to that question now. Also it looks like you figured it out yourself? By the way, when you find the answer to your own question, you can write it up as an answer and accept it -- that has the combined advantage of adding knowledge to the site and allowing you to mark the question as answered.
