Chocolate Statistics

May 25, 2011

If at any one moment in time, there is a 73% chance that I have chocolate on my bum, and 58% of the time there is no one around who can be relied upon to tell me if I do or not, and 6% of the time I leave the house without checking my backside first, what are the odds that I will go to the store with a chocolate tushie and never know it?

  1. Hmmm, if you see someone that you know, your chances increase exponentially.

  2. I never was very good at story problems. Are we being graded on this?

  3. 52%. Because even if you check 96% of the time, there is a 43% chance that you got new chocolate on your pants just from sitting in the car.

    Love the new format, very nice!

  4. Oh, the car! I didn't even take that into consideration! I'll probably just have to accept my fate and wear brown pants everyday.

  5. Uh, I'm pretty sure I remembered to add the one and carry the 4, but I'm a little confused. So I'm just gonna say, pretty high? Just guessing. I only teach first grade, so percentages aren't really part of the gig.

  7. Hey, I like the new look!
    And I have to regularly check for undone buttons and zippers because no one around here is going to notice for me.
