## As I see it...

@Carl Love edited. It seems to me there are two probabilities. The probability of the particular configuration occurring, which is 1/1001. Then testing whether that configuration was a result of proper randomisation. You applied Fishers test and got probability 6/1001. Because that is a lot less than 0.05 it is significant. i.e there is evidence the pick wasn’t done randomly. I didn’t really think about a test for significance when I originally posted the question.

I’m not sure if you are tearing your hair out at my interpretation but I’m going to bed now.

## Unfortunately...

@Carl Love I don't have Maple 2019. But thanks anyway. I put it through your 2018 code and it works....

So my old maths prof was correct for the probability...1 / 1001 = 0.000999

## Scenario 2...

Thankyou for your effort. Just to clarify, each contestant was given an opaque bag containing a buff.

Once they were dispensed, they were told to reveal their buffs (simultaneously). So that would be Scenario 2.

## Thanks...

@acer On yours it worked, but I tried this in my worksheet, but label 9 still displays USD....

Feel free to peruse the problem i'm trying to solve, its a work in progress..

## Die Hard Riddle...

Yuri, how can I use you code to solve a 2 bucket problem with unlimited water.

Happy Xmas!

## Thanks...

@Joe Riel Sorry for being thick, but whats the instructors number prediction? Would it be an envelope containing one (or more?) of the 8 most frequent sums 1755,1638,1656,...?

## Where...

## Symbolic...

As the error says, you have a symbolic upper limit z. You need to change it to a number

## thanks...

@Rouben Rostamian  I suppose its too "human crafted" to make a general procedure out of it.

@acer thanks

## Thanks...

@tomleslie Tom and Joe and Carl

## Are you using Document or Worksheet mode...

I assume you're using 2D input. Try it with 1D input

## Householder...

@Carl Love Thanks. So for LambertW(0.4)

first iteration: --> x=y (keep x and y the same so Ln(1)=0). For Order 3: W(0.4,0.4) = 0.297061159

next iteration: W (0.297061159, 0.4) = 0.2971677 .

good!
