One of the first scientists to experiment with thunderstorm electricity even before Ben Franklin was killed by BL. Lightning struck his metal mast, and witnesses said that a ball of fire flew out and struck him on the forehead, killing him instantly.
Now, in Chapter 3: To refresh your memory, we had two boxes of cookies in front of us. One box was filled with 10 chocolate chip cookies.
The other box had 5 chocolate chip and 5 peanut butter cookies. We then closed our eyes and picked a cookie out of a box, and when we opened them back up we had selected a chocolate chip cookie.
After doing this we discovered the following: We will find the answer for Box A first and then deduce from this to find the answer for Box B.
To start, we always need to determine what we are wanting to find. We want to know the probability of Box A given that we selected a chocolate chip cookie. Write what you want to find as a formula. Then, plug it in. What is the probability of drawing from Box A?
Remember, this probability is independent of all other events. Since there are only two boxes and the probability of selecting from either is equal, the answer is. What is the probability that we will select a chocolate chip cookie?
There is 20 cookies total in both boxes, and 15 of them are chocolate chip. What is the probability of selecting a chocolate chip cookie given that we have selected from Box A? Since there are only chocolate chip cookies in Box A, the probability is 1. Now, we can plug each ingredient into the formula: Since all probability adds up to 1, we can discover this by doing the following:This is a collection of K Newton and physics jokes studded with science links, pictures and stamps describing physics history and Newton's life and work.

Bayes' theorem is a formula that describes how to update the probabilities of hypotheses when given evidence. It follows simply from the axioms of conditional probability, but can be used to powerfully reason about a wide range of problems involving belief updates.
In finance, Bayes' theorem can be used to rate the risk of lending money to potential borrowers. The formula is as follows: Bayes' theorem is also called Bayes' Rule or Bayes' Law.
Heroes and Villains - A little light reading. Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many.
