#332885 Probability of a rope cut exactly in half, in a single slice

Posted by Anza Power on 09 June 2013 - 07:13 PM

The who gave the answer 1/3 had the logic that there are only three possibilities of this experiment after the cut.


1. Left peice is bigger

2. right peice is bigger

3. left peice = right peice


so the probability he calculated is 1/3.


Ok, so by that logic if I go and fill out the lottery, there are 2 possibilities, either I win or I lose,  so probability of me winning is 1/2...


But yeah as kingofpain said, the probability is 0, you can think of it like this: the rope is 1 meter long and you pick a number between 0 and 1 and slice there, now, how many numbers are there between 0 and 1?


(even if you think of the rope in a 3D space and give it a diameter the answer doesn't change)
