What algorithms do you think artificial intelligence use to learn?

They use probabilistic models, more often than not Bayesian models. This question is a basic Bayesian probability question. If you don't understand this you cannot build any probabilistic machine (control system, AI, recommendation system like Netflix, ranking system like Google.)

Even if Box 1 has a million gold balls, if you choose a box with one gold ball, the only two options are either the next ball is or is not gold, since there are only two boxes, one with another gold ball to pick, and one without.

Well justifying a wrong answer with an incorrect intuition doesn't make it anymore correct.

If you pick a random box. If after the first pick you have a gold ball, then it is most probable you have the box with 2 gold balls. Thus, it has to be greater than 1/2. What is the answer then?

>>

>>720122761

It's actually 75%. It's impossible for you to be on the 3rd box. If you're on the first box (which you have a 50% chance of being in), then you have a 100% chance of pulling a gold ball. If you're in the 2nd box (again, 50% chance), you have a 50% chance of pulling a gold ball. So it's 75%.

50% + 50% of 50% = 50% + 25% = 75%

>>

It's impossible to answer because it was not specified if the ball was replaced or not.

For any half educated mathematician, this is the equivalent of setting a question where you forgot to put a pen in your hand before you wrote it, and also somehow accidentally getting your dick caught in the desk fan.

no, it is basic probability. you have two boxes, one box contains a gold ball, the other contains a silver ball. 50% chance everyday.

2/3 is correct btw

>>

>>720123195

No, there are 3 gold balls, not 2. So it's X out of 3.

And since 2 of the those 3 gold balls are in the same box (i.e. in a box with another gold ball), it's 2 out of 3.

>>

>>720123195

And to add to this, the people counting the 3rd box in their equations are the actual morons, even though you may know math, you don't have any critical thinking. You already know you must be in box 1 or 2, even though there is a 3rd box, you can safely ignore it, because there are no gold balls in it. There could be 500 boxes, but if there is 1 box with 1 gold and 1 silver, another with 2 golds, and 498 with 2 silvers each, you can safely ignore them all because you will NEVER be in any of them (you already pulled a golden ball, for god's sakes).

You can't pull a second gold ball out of the second box, though. If you drew one initially, that would be the only one there.

You are right, then it's 50%. Either you're in the 0% probability box (the 2nd) or you're in the 100% probability box (the 1st). I was actually the moron, thanks for pointing it out (but so was everyone else).

>>

>>720123225

lol this is like looking at something with a 99% chance versus a 1% chance and saying its 50/50 because "it can either happen or it won't"

>>

>>720123522

It's incorrect. Since we know you pulled a gold ball, there's a higher chance you picked box 1 as opposed to box 2. Keep restarting the experiment where you pick a random box and then a random ball. In the cases where you picked a gold ball, 2/3 of the time you will have chosen box 1.

Box with gold ball: 2/3

Box with 2 gold ball: 1/3

Your odds: 50% of second gold ball.

>>720123741

Correct.

>>720123752

Solve the problem, it's easy. if you can't then admit it and learn something new. Don't be a useful idiot (blue collar worker).

>>

>>720123658

put any number of gold/silver balls in those two boxes and you will get the right answer if you consider only the 2 balls.

>>

>>720123658

If you drew the gold ball out of the box containing silver and gold, how would you then draw another gold without being in box 1? Thus, you cannot pull a second gold ball out of the second box. If you drew one initially, that would be the only one there (the remaining ball would be silver).

>>

>>720123799

except it's not and you are wrong.

>>

So I've taken a box, in that box is a gold ball. Knowing this we can discard the silver box entirely. We now have 2 boxes left that can be the one I have chosen. In this box that I have picked, there remains either 1 gold ball or 1 silver ball as we have already taken 1 gold out.

The odds are 1/2 (50%).

>>720123787

i think this guy is the op. he doesn't realise how stupid he is

>>

>>720123864

only the balls* didn't mean to include the 2

>>

The answer is 2/3

protip: you can ignore the box with two silver balls completely

>>

>>720123799

>>720123801

50% is not the correct answer. Read the thread.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand's_box_paradox

>>720123805

Yeah very similar. Both are very confusing without some knowledge of probability theory.

>>720123834

lol wut. This is extremely wrong. How did you get any of those values.

>>

>>720123473

>>720123473

>That's the wrong idea. You got the correct answer by fluke. But, the way you justified it is incorrect.

No, you're incorrect.

It's really quite simple. You draw a gold ball first. There are 3 gold balls, and there's an equal chance you drew any one of them. So the easiest way to visualize the solution is to look at the 3 gold balls independently. And for each of them ask, what color is the other ball in the box?

>>

>>720123658

>Both incorrect assumptions.

But the problem isn't being done repetitively it is done only once in the problem, hence it is 1/2

>>

>>720123862

lol dont use phrases you dont understand moron, you are the useful idiot here. i bet you fell for the overpopulation meme lol

>>

>>720123358

Wrong. Initial condition is you are in 1 of 2 boxes which contain gold balls.

3rd box is irrelevant to initial condition.

50% chance.

IF the initial condition were not given as gold ball, but as silver ball, odds would be more complex.

>>

>>720122251

zero because of the way you framed the question

>>

i dont understand how people are so idiotic,

if you ALREADY have a gold ball how much chance is it to get a second one, obviously you have the first or the second box so 50%

>>

>>720124087

Who mentioned a third box? You did. Nobody's considering the third box except you.

>>

>>720123930

>So I've taken a box, in that box is a gold ball. Knowing this we can discard the silver box entirely.

You can also "half-discard" the mixed box for the same reason

thats why the probability is biased towards it being the gold+gold box and the answer is 2/3

>>

>>720123864

This is intelligible.

>>720123915

So there is a possibility that the second ball drawn will be silver. However, it is more likely that it will be a gold ball, since it is more likely that the first gold ball came from the box with two gold balls inside.

>>720123930

Wrong.

Nope. It was TRYING to be, but was set up wrong in the problem statement. Monty hall problem relies on single item and all 3 doors in play. This is simple 1 in 2.

If you RESTATE problem as PULL OUT SILVER BALL, then what is probability of 2nd ball being GOLD, this would not be 50%.

>>

>>720124202

Okay, you have 2 boxes, GG and GS, you draw a gold from one, whats the probability you draw another gold from the same box?

>>

>>720124198

Except there's a 2 in 3 chance the gold ball you just drew came from the first box. So the first box counts twice, the second box counts once. (If you're counting boxes, which is a very misleading approaching.)

>>

>>720122761

Correct.

I think people didn't read the problem correctly. The solution is to ignore the box with two silvers and focus on golds. There's a 1/4 Chance of a silver in the beginning.

Removing one gold brings that chance to 1/3 for silver and 2/3 for gold.

You are all fucking retarded if you can't read.

Still 2 out of 3. Here:

G1 G2 | G3 S1

If you drew G1, the next ball is G2. (Win.)

If you drew G2, the next ball is G1. (Win.)

If you drew G3, the next ball is S. (Lose.)

>>

>>720124483

well set out. I don't see how anyone can disagree with this logic, but I'd like to see the stubborn people in this thread try

>>

The following reasoning appears to give a probability of 1/2:

Originally, all three boxes were equally likely to be chosen.

The chosen box cannot be box SS.

So it must be box GG or GS.

The two remaining possibilities are equally likely. So the probability that the box is GG, and the other coin is also gold, is 1/2.

The flaw is in the last step. While those two cases were originally equally likely, the fact that you are certain to find a gold coin if you had chosen the GG box, but are only 50% sure of finding a gold coin if you had chosen the GS box, means they are no longer equally likely given that you have found a gold coin. Specifically:

The probability that GG would produce a gold coin is 1.

The probability that SS would produce a gold coin is 0.

The probability that GS would produce a gold coin is 1/2.

From wikipedia.

That's the wrong intuition but the correct answer.

>>720124764

Yup and wiki specifically says in what you posted that, the reasoning leading to 1/2 is flawed. It then continues to state that the correct answer is 2/3.

The correct answer of

2

/

3

can also be obtained as follows:

Originally, all six coins were equally likely to be chosen.

The chosen coin cannot be from drawer S of box GS, or from either drawer of box SS.

So it must come from the G drawer of box GS, or either drawer of box GG.

The three remaining possibilities are equally likely, so the probability that the drawer is from box GG is

2

/

3

.

Alternatively, one can simply note that the chosen box has two coins of the same type

2

/

3

of the time. So, regardless of what kind of coin is in the chosen drawer, the box has two coins of that type

2

/

3

of the time. In other words, the problem is equivalent to asking the question "What is the probability that I will pick a box with two coins of the same color?".

>>720124845

It's not the same problem. Very similar but the way the conditional statement affects the problem space is different. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand's_box_paradox

>>

>>720124867

i was right

>>

>>720122251

50%

The probability is no longer between 3 boxes, but between a box that has 2 gold and a box that has 1 gold, one silver. As we know that we have drawn a gold ball, the box has equal chance of having either the gold or the silver ball left in the box for us to take next. The box of 2 silver balls doesn't play into this chance.

I misunderstood the when you said 2/3 coming from the first. A mistake often made with this problem is people do not consider it as 3 separate actions. Rather they just assume that if you ignore the third box. It is 2/3 because that's the number of gold balls left.

You are correct.

>alternative facts

>>720122251

The answer is 50% or 1/2. Since the ball you took was gold, you can discard the box with silver balls as it is impossible that is the box you chose. So now the two possible boxes are the gold and silver box, and the gold and gold box. Remove 1 gold from each box (because you took a gold out) and now u have either silver or gold. 50%.

>>

>>720124483

I cant understand WHY G2 and G1 have to be unrelated instances. The question is what's the probability of picking another gold ball if you picked a gold one in the first place, so it wouldn't matter which one of the golden balls in the box with 2 of them you took.

>>720123195

If you pulled a gold ball from the second one there's only a silver one left. Thus 50% chance.

>>

>>720122251

The question never tells you if you put the ball back or not.

If not: 50%

If you replace it: 75%

>>

>>720122251

This shitstorm again. Since amerifags in particular but pretty much everyone is illitterate in maths and won't "believe" a correct proof, i'll put it in a way so that those who say 50% realise they're wrong.

Say you have a box with 1 million gold balls, another one with 1 million silver balls, and a third one with 999999 silver balls and 1 gold ball.

You extract a gold ball from one random box. Even a retarded dog can understand that the possibility is waaaay over 50% to have picked it from the all gold box (with these numbers it's about 99.999%). Now take one ball from every box, you'll still admit it doesn't change the fact that it's not 50%. Keep doing it. Eventually you'll have 3 balls per box, GGG, GSS, SSS. It is easy to see that the chance is way higher for the G ball to come from the first box. Take out one last ball, the result won't suddenly shift to 50%. This is not a rigorous proof, but it gives the idea of why you're wrong. 2/3 is the right answer.

If this still doesn't convince you, try it yourself. Take 4 coins, mark 3 with an X.

Put two of those with the X together in a glass and the other two (one marked, one not marked) in another. Mix them up and then pick a random coin from one. If it has the X, check the other one in the same glass. Do it 20-30ish times and you'll see that in about 2/3 of the attempts the X coin will come from a glass with he other marked coin in it. The reason is simply that you'll pick each glass 50% of the times, but every time you'll pick the unmarked coin, the extraction won't count an you'll just put it back in, because we only care about extraction of the marked coin.

>>

>>720126300

While I am pretty stoned I can see where they are coming from. There was a 50% chance I'd have drawn the silver ball from the g/s box therefore it is less likely I drew from that box.

>>

>>720126284

Maybe this will help: The initial conditions assume you drew a gold. You're drawing blindly, so you could end up with any of the three gold balls. There are three gold balls, so there's a 1 in 3 chance of drawing any one of them.

That's what matters. Because in the second step, you're just looking at the ball you already drew (1 of the 3 golds). It doesn't really matter which box it came from, just what the OTHER ball in the box is. And if you iterate through all the possibilities (all 3 gold balls), 2 out of 3 times the other ball is gold.

The boxes make this orders of magnitude harder. I was confused because I was thinking:

Since you already took a gold ball that means box 3 is eliminated. You now have 2 eligible boxes. Since one box has one gold ball and one silver and the other one has two gold balls I was calculating the probability of choosing the all-gold box instead.

I always count the two separate inverted instances as one (GB1 and GB2 in the all gold box should be differentiated and counted as different scenarios)

>>

>>720122979

Fuck off you faggot cunt, the first given fact is that you've grabbed one golden ball. There is no probability in this as of now. This does mean, the third box, the two silver ones, is excluded.

Now, probability plays a role. There's two possible boxes.

P(2nd ball gold)=1/2=0.5, or 50%

>>

>>720127771

It's a slight variation of this paradox.

"The 'paradox' is in the probability, after choosing a box at random and withdrawing one coin at random, if that happens to be a gold coin, of the next coin also being a gold coin."

In the example above, you're not taking it from the same box. The majority of the answers here is wrong, especially those who think it's 2/3.

>>

you start with:

GG GS SS

you pull a G

the 3rd box falls away as not relevant, you are left with either:

GG xS

or

Gx GS

in either situation, there are 2 gold balls and 1 silver ball remaining. 2/3 odds to pull a gold ball. Whether you pick from the same box again isn't really relevant.

>>

It depends on how you interpret the question.

"What is the probability that, picking a box at random, you pull out a gold and then another gold"

or

"What is the specific probability of getting another gold after having drawn one gold"

If it's the second question, it's 50%.

>>

>>720129583

if you draw 1 gold you eliminate the box with 2 silvers and thus there are 2 golds and a silver remaining, 2/3rds odds to pull another gold.

ok let me help..

Fuck the boxes.

There are 6 balls. 3 gold, 3 silver.

there is a 3/6 chance (50% to pull a gold pall at the start.

After pulling a gold ball there are 5 balls.

2 of the 5 remaining balls are gold.

you have a 2/5 chance to pull a gold ball..

people in here are creepy dumb..

either way it's pretty amazing seeing you people whether educated or not so quick to talk shit and call everyone else a dumbfuck lol

everyone in this thread basically is cancer gj being incapable of rational dialogue and connecting with others

>>

>>720129670

Nope.

You believe there are three options: gold, gold, or silver.

That is not true, though. There are actually only two options, either your hand is in the box with two golds (and hence, the other ball in the box is gold), or your hand is in the silvergold box and the other ball is silver.

There are two options, not three.

>>

>>720129899

there aren't 5 balls after a gold ball pull because you know you aren't picking from the box with 2 silvers in it, thus you must be pulling from either the double gold or the silver/gold box - 3 balls remaining (2 of which are gold).

>>

>>720128912

[1G2G] [3G4S] [5S6S]

These are your boxes. Now there are six ways you can pick a box and remove two balls in order:

1,2 (G,G)

2,1 (G,G)

3,4 (G,S)

4,3 (S,G)

5,6 (S,S)

6,5 (S,S)

When you pick a box and remove a ball, you're committed to that box and that ball. So the ball you pick first completely determines which ball you'll pick second. There's no way to draw ball three then get ball two; there's no way to draw ball three then get anything but ball four.

So we know you drew ball 1, 2, or 3 (because the ball you drew was gold). This means you absolutely have to get ball 2, 1, or 4. Balls 2,1 and 4 are G, G, and S, which means you have a 2/3 chance of having picked a ball that guarantees you will get a second gold ball, and a 1/3 chance of having picked a ball that guarantees you get the silver one.

The second ball you get isn't even a probability thing: you already rolled for it when you picked the first ball.

Well that's Bertrand's Paradox (that it seems to be 1/2) but it doesn't actually work out like that mathematically or in practice.

From the wiki:

>Since we know his probability is

2

/

3

, not

1

/

2

, we have an apparent paradox. It can be resolved only by recognizing how the combination of "observing a gold coin" with each possible box can only affect the probability that the box was GS or SS, but not GG.

i don't care how you act, im just telling you that acting like this = mental illness or something lol

>>

>>720130248

why ?

>>

>>720130103

Uh but that's not how the question is constructed. If you have to pick from the same box again you *know* it isn't the double silver box thus those 2 balls aren't being counted in the odds.

>>

>>720130073

>>720130236

your ad hominem is leaking out.

>>

>>720130394

The Paradox is that it *seems to be* 1/2 odds logically but in reality/math doesn't work out like that (because it is 2/3rds actually).

thus you have all the btards on here screaming about beta faggots not knowing basic logic (bc they think it is 1/2 and it is obviously so)

>>

its 2/3 you fucking idiots.

you eliminate box 3 because only has silver. you have 1 gold ball in your hand and 3 possible remaining balls of unknown color, 2 of which are gold. 2 of 3 unknown balls are gold = 2/3 chance

>>

66.6%

>>

>>720130516

no, it's 2/3 idiot

>>

Anyway the right answer has been posted with both a math proof (which prolly isn't helpful to anyone who doesn't already know it but anyway) and in plain english with wiki sources so at this point we're just slinging shit and ima go back to fapping

>>

>>720129583

It's not 50%, because the second ball isn't a roll.

If you pick one ball from a box, you are 100% guaranteed to get the other ball from the box. You will never get any ball other than the other ball in the box. You're not picking boxes at all; that's a decoy to lead you to the wrong answer. You're actually picking one of the six balls to pull out first, and then the ball you get second 100% depends on which ball you got first.

Therefore:

If you pick the silver ball in the middle box or either gold ball in the first box, you're guaranteed to get a gold ball second.

If you pick the gold ball in the middle box or either silver ball in the last box, you're guaranteed to get a silver ball second.

Because the ball you picked was gold, we know it's not the silver ball from the middle box or either ball from the last box. Two of the balls you could have picked will guarantee you a gold ball, and one of the balls you could have picked will guarantee you a silver ball.

2:1 is 66%

>>

This is simple you have a 50% chance of grabbing a good or silver ball at this point you are guaranteed to have either the two fold out the gold and silver because you've already grabbed one gold ball so you have a 50/50 chance that it's going to be the gold ball or the silver ball

>>

>>720130578

its 4/6 you fucking buffoon

50/50 chance

the people here cant read.The answer is 100%

????????

>>

>>720129670

In the problem of the coins, this makes sense. In this problem, so far it doesn't seem to make sense to me. Because I didn't understand the problem of the coins at the beginning, I'm cautious this time.

Anyhow: the question here is the opposite. It doesn't ask "what's the chance you draw a gold ball, and then another gold ball?". You KNOW you have drawn a gold ball already. Therefore, you could be in either box. So you either draw a gold ball, or not.

>>

>>720130679

first of all 2/3 you fucking cunt

second pulling the first ball as gold eliminates the silver silver box so you have one of 2 boxes, a gold gold or a gold silver, thus you have a 1 in 2 chance (50% 50/50, however you faggots wanna put it)

>>

>>720131081

"What is the probability that the next ball you take from the same box will also be gold?"

>>

Easiest way to understand these problems is to try them yourself. Just like the 3 door problem.

GG -- GS -- SS

If you reach into GS, there's a 50% chance of getting the gold. But, there's a 100% chance of getting a gold ball from GG. But since we know that we got a gold ball, that means it's more likely that you reached into GG than GS.

The options are as follows:

1. Reach into GG, get G. (Win)

2. Reach into GG, get other G. (Win)

3. Reach into GS, get G. (Lose)

3 options, each with 1/3 chance of happening based on the setup of the problem, right? So 2/3 times, you end up with a gold ball.

>>

>>720131251

I think you're overcomplicating it.

>>

>>720131081

But one box gives you a 100% chance for a gold ball, so you end up in that box more.

>>

>>720129670

this would be true if the odds were based on balls (heh) rather than the box but they aren't (if they were all 3 would be in one box but you would also still have the silvers thus it would be 2/5 chances) the odds however are based on the boxes themselves and after pulling the gold and eliminating the double silver leaves you with, as explained, 2 chances of you have the gold/gold and the gold/silver box

thus its 1/2 not 2/3

>>

>>720130478

so 2/3 because there are 3 boxes and

there are 2 boxes with golden balls ?

>>

>>720123473

Techincally, it's not that far off. The probability that you'd draw from the 1G1S box is Â½. The probability you'd draw gold from the 2G box is 1. The probability of the 2S box is 0.

That's literally what it says in the wiki.

>>

>>720131081

Man I have to get a two-headed and a two-tailed coin. I'd make bank.

You guys are all getting confused because of the boxes. The boxes are mathematically identical to the coins: if you pick one ball (face) in one box (coin), you absolutely have to then get the other ball that was in the box (other side of the coin).

The problem can be rephrased as

"You have three coins: one has two heads, one has two tails, and one is a normal coin. You pick one without looking, toss it without looking, and when you look down, you see the coin is heads-up. What are the chances that, when you turn it over, the other side will be a head?"

and would be exactly the same problem.

>>

>>720131251

Yep 2/3. Agreed

>>

>>720131251

You can either get a silver or a gold ball next, so it's 50/50

>>

>>720130847

Yes. It's clear to me now:

- There are three boxes.

- You drew one gold ball.

- This means you are in Box 1 or Box 2.

- If you are in Box 1, you can only draw a gold ball.

- If you are in Box 2, you can only draw a silver ball.

If the question was:

"What was the chance I drew a gold ball from these two boxes?"

Then the answer would obviously be 3/4 chance. Because there are, indeed, four possible results: a gold ball, another gold ball, yet another gold ball, and a silver ball.

But this is not the scenario the question asks, but rather "okay, you've got a gold ball in your hand: what's the chance you take a gold ball from the SAME box?"

>>

>>720122251

Chance of your two ball having the same colour : 2/3 (two boxes vs one mixed)

Chance of your ball being gold : 1/2 (three gold, three sllver)

Therefore, the solution is 1/3

>>

2/3

>>

>>720131507

Answer is 2/3

>>

>>720131464

pulling a gold eliminates ss box so theres really only 2

>>

>>720131502

No, because 2/3 times you're in the GG box. More likely to be in GG, more likely to get gold.

>>

>>720131680

Correct

>>

>>720131680

alternative facts RREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>>

>>720131519

No, it's 2/3

>>

>>720131830

I have no idea how this works so i kill myself but thanks for answering my stupid questions

>>

>>720131464

No, it's 2/3 because there are six balls, and 2/6 of them are in the same box as another gold ball (this is where the "2/" comes from), and three of them are silver so you can't have picked them.

so 2/(6-3) = 2/3.

If you added another box with two silver balls, there'd be 8 balls total, 2 gold balls sharing with another gold ball, and 5 silver balls, so

it would be 2/(8-5) = still 2/3

If you added another box with one ball each, there'd be 8 balls total, 2 gold ball sharing with another gold ball, and 4 silver balls, so 2/(8-4) = 2/4 = 1/2.

>>

>>720131341

That's the mistake. The question, just like the coin question, has unnecessary information. The third box is pointless. It doesn't matter. I have a gold ball already. I know I'm in either box 1, or box 2. Now, if I have a gold ball in my hand, the remaining ball is either a gold ball (Box 1) or a silver ball (Box 2).

IF there were three balls in each box, three golds in one, two golds and one silver in another, the answer would be different.

>>720131491

I understand what you mean. But, in my opinion, that isn't what the question is asking.

It's similar to the Monty Hall problem with the donkeys. We all know it is better to switch, but if one shuffles the doors it's a 50% chance you find the car or not.

50% You are either taking balls from the box with 2 gold balls or you are not.

I think i understand this now

Thanks

GG GS SS

pick G

XG GS

2 golds left

1 silver left

2/3 chance, r-right?

>>

itt: people arguing over which balls to grab

>>

>>720131680

But you've already drawn a gold from one of the boxes, then it is 50/50 wheter it was from the box with the golds or the one with a gold and a silver.

>>

>>720132389

1 2 3

GG GS SS

pick 1 of 3

take G from 1 or 2

IF G was taken from 1, 1 now has XG

IF G was taken from 2, 2 now has XS

take second ball from 1 or 2 (whichever you were in before)

it can either be G or S

1/2

>>720132459

What do you expect, this is /b/...

>>

>>720131507

You've already drawn a gold ball from one of the boxes, that means it can be two of the three boxes. Two choices = 50/50

This is how I was taught math. Am I missing something? Am I bad at english and not understanding?

>>

>>720132185

Say we get rid of box three entirely. The scenario is still exactly the same: either

- you chose ball 1 (and will get ball 2); WIN

- you chose ball 2 (and will get ball 1): WIN

- you chose ball 3 (and will get ball 4): LOSE

There now one thing we know didn't happen:

- you chose ball 4 (and will get ball 3): YOU DIDN'T GET A SILVER BALL

WIN/WIN/LOSE is 2/3 or 66.6%

No matter how many or how few boxes with only silver balls you have.

>>

>>720132170

you are retarded. There are only 4 balls. Just because you can still see the other two doesn't mean they are not exactly like a number that you scratched off an algebra question and then forgot about because your teacher told you to simplify the question.

>>

>>720132665

You don't have any choices, because you always get the ball that shares a box with the one you already picked.

You determined which ball you'd get second when you chose the ball you'd get first.

There are six balls in total:

1:WIN

2:WIN

3:LOSE

4:SILVER (WIN)

5:SILVER (LOSE)

6:SILVER (LOSE)

We know you didn't pick a silver ball, so it's either WIN, WIN, or LOSE; this is 2/3.

>>

>>720132700

The first criteria gets rid of box 3 entirely, so of course it is the same, still your 'logic' is wrong.

| GOLD GOLD | GOLD SILVER |

Now you take one out of these boxes, that one is a golden one, there now are two possible scenarios:

1: | GOLD EMPTY | GOLD SILVER |

2: | GOLD GOLD | EMTPY SILVER |

Now, depending on which box you first picked the golden ball from, you either get a golden ball (Scenario 1) or you get a silver ball (Scenario 2).

>>

>>720132487

For the first draw, it doesn't matter whether you drew from the box with the golds or the box with a gold or a silver. It just matters that you drew a gold. And for the second draw, the odds are 2:1 that the gold you already have came from the gold/gold box, so there's a 2/3 chance the other ball in the box is gold.

>>

>>720132788

You're not picking anything in the second round, you just get the ball that comes with the ball you picked in the first round.

So however many balls are "left" for you to "pick from" in the second round doesn't matter, because there is no second round and you always, 100% of the time, unavoidably, get the roomie of the ball you picked in the first round.

>>

>>720133265

Good way of putting it.

>>

>>720133023

But it said in OPs picture that you had picked up a golden ball. There are two boxes that contain at least one gold ball. SO it has to be one of them.

Since you've taken out a gold ball.

It means there is either a silver or a gold.

That's 50% chance.

>>

>>720132700

>>720132665

>>720132185

OHHHHHHHHH I GOT IT NOW.

Basically, there was a 2/3 chance that if I took a Gold ball, I landed on Box 1, since it had the higher amount of gold balls.

Hence there's a bigger chance I will grab another Gold ball.

>>

>>720133127

You're missing

3: [EMPTY GOLD] [GOLD SILVER]

and

4: [GOLD GOLD] [GOLD EMPTY]<<--we know this didn't happen because you're not holding a silver ball

>>

>>720133533

I forgot to say "disregard picture".

>>

>>720132185

It's not a mistake, it is exactly the point. You either chose ball A from the gold/gold box, ball B from the gold/gold box, or ball A from the gold/silver box. That gives you a 2 out of 3 chance that you're in gold/gold.

>>

>>720133533

>>720133587

The pic's nonsense, but otherwise correct.

>>

why doesn't someone just do the fucking experiment (or write a program to do it 1000 times) and see how many times it works?

>>

>>720133533

It makes some sort of sense, but only slightly. Why does the chances of the first ball matter? That isn't in the OPs question. You've already taken out a ball.

>>

>>720122251

2/3

>>

>>720133380

The three golden balls are 1, 2, and 3.

All you know if you're holding a golden ball is that you're holding either ball 1, ball 2, or ball 3.

YOU ALWAYS GET SECOND THE OTHER BALL FROM THE SAME BOX.

YOU NEVER GET ANY OTHER BALL.

So if you're holding ball 1 you'll get ball 2; if you're holding ball 2 you'll get ball 1, and if you're holding ball 3 you'll get ball 4.

So if you pick ball 1 first you always win, if you pick ball 2 first you always win, and if you pick ball 3 first you always lose.

WIN:WIN:LOSE is 2/3.

>>

>>720122251

50/50

>>

>>720122251

3 options

>I have ball A in my hand

>I have ball B in my hand

>I have ball C in my hand

3 options, two of them will result in my next pull being a gold ball. 66.67% chance the next ball is gold. All other answers are either trolls or legitimate idiots.

>>

>>720133774

Reread: there's a 2/3 chance that IF you have a gold ball, the box you picked was box 1.

This is because there's a 3/3 chance you picked ball 1, 2 or 3; and therefore a 2/3 chance you picked ball 1 or ball 2 (box 1) and only a 1/3 chance you picked ball 3 (box 2).

>>

>>720133547

your third case is the same as my first...

>>

>>720134674

Because two are the same as your first, but only one is the same as your second, that's where the 2:1 comes from.

>>

>>720133758

Good idea, but you don't even have to actually write the program to see it comes out to 2/3. Your code would look something like this:

>pick a random number from 1-3

>if it's 3 (silver/silver), do nothing and pick again

>if it's 1 (gold/gold) add one to the total goldBallPicked, add one to the total goldGoldPicked

>if it's 2 (gold/silver), pick a random number from 1-2

>if it's 1 (gold), add a total to goldBallPicked, add a total to goldSilverPicked

>if it's 2 (silver) do nothing and pick again

See how you add to goldGoldPicked 100% of the time you are in it, and to goldSilverPicked only 50% of the time you are in it? That right there is 2/3.

>>

absolutely 75%

but i can't be bothered to explain

>>

>>720135149

Impossible to explain, because it's not 75%.

>>

>>720133774

Right. I thought so too as well. But you have to remember that Gold ball got to you somehow. And that somehow is "you had 2 out of 3 possibilities to land in the box with 2 gold balls".

In other words, it is more likely you are in the gold box than not. The answer is still "the next ball is either gold or silver", which is true. But the real question is "what are the ODDS the next ball is gold?". And the odds are stacked in Gold's favor.

>>

i know this code is so badly written but here is definitive proof of 2/3, which tbh i didnt think it was at first

>>720122251

You either will or you won't so 1/2. If you grabbed a gold ball already then the box with no gold balls is irrelevant. Therefore, you will either grab a gold ball or you wont

It's 2/3

There are 6 balls, lets number them 1 to 6

You randomly choose a box and draw a random ball. This has 6 possible outcomes:

Ball 1 from the GG box

Ball 2 from the GG box

Ball 3 from the GS box

Ball 4 from the GS box

Ball 5 from the SS box

Ball 6 from the SS box

We know it's not option 4, 5 or 6, because the ball is not silver. 3 options remain, 2 of which will result in a 2nd gold ball

General dictionaries aren't very good with technical terms. Computers process in 0s and 1s (or offs and ons, or any other representation of a switch). Hex is a way to present those 0s and 1s in a more compact, more human-friendly way. But it's still a layer on top.
