Question: Predict Perfect


Initially I tried to find pemutations of 1..9, ie [[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]],[[1,2,4],[3,5,6],[7,8,9]],...etc, But maybe not all of them?

I wonder if someone out there can change my code to reflect the following:

1/According to the pdf excerpt, there are a total of 199 unique sums, the smallest sum is 774 and the largest 2556.(From displaying 280 outcomes, the code got the 774).

2/Show which sums have the greatest probability (specifically, 1566, 1575, 1638, 1656, 1674, 1692, 1755, and 1764, each of which can be shown with effort to have a 3/280, or 1.07%, probability – the calculations to determine this probability is a brute-force computation, and requires enumerating all outcomes of the sample space within a computational software package). We then finally reveal the prediction, which of course is correct..(I don't get it)


Please Wait...
