playing with markers pt. 2
Posted 11 December 2013 - 08:18 AM
Now the question: If i create three marker lengths using all of the markers, and multiply the length of one line segment by the reciprocal of another by the MEDIAN marker length of all three
1st marker group: 17/23
2nd marker group: 2/23
3rd marker group: 4/23
Median marker group: 4/23
17/23 * 23/2 * 4/23
what combination would give me the smallest value? largest value? Is there a process or means to generalize this for n markers?
