he didn't call fives though. he had a ten in ten chance of getting a number (any number, doesn't matter) and a one in ten chance of getting the same number. That's a ten in 100, or 10% chance of getting a matching pair.
That's like saying if you flip a coin twice, you have a 50% chance of getting heads both times. It's true that you have a 50% chance each time, but to get heads both times is a 25% chance.
but you're specifying the side of the coin. He has a 100% chance of getting a side of the coin on the first toss, because it doesn't matter what side you start with. This guy had a 1% of getting dubs 5, but a 10% chance of getting dubs. If you notice, he didn't specify what the first number would be. If he rolled 6, he'd have a 10% chance of getting a 6 on the second roll. The odds only matter on the second roll. Like your coin toss analogy, it doesn't matter what the first toss was, because either way there's a 50% chance of getting a matching toss. UNLESS he starts by saying "I'm going to get heads twice in a row" before he starts. Son, you are meddling with powers you have no comprehension of.
are you retarded?
getting 5 two times in a row is 1 to 100.
But he would get toenail clippings up no matter what the number were.
So its 1 to 1 in getting any number (0 to 9) and then its 10% of getting the number again
since the first roll would always give a useful number, you would just need the second rolled number to be the same as the first.
But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado
I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go
No more living trapped inside
In her way I'll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away
