Unformatted text preview: Which model does the God use? Consider the experiment when two dice are tossed. If the dice are identifiable, the sample space has 36 sample points. If the dice are notidentifiable, the sample space has 21 points. If each outcome is equally likely, what is the probability that the outcome is (1, 1)? () January 13, 2011 1 / 17 Which model does the God use? Assuming identifiability: the answer is 1/36 = 2.8%; Assuming nonidentifiability: the answer is 1/21 = 4.8%; () January 13, 2011 2 / 17 Which model does the God use? Assuming identifiability: the answer is 1/36 = 2.8%; Assuming nonidentifiability: the answer is 1/21 = 4.8%; We may reveal this secrete by experimentation. () January 13, 2011 2 / 17 Which model does the God use? Help to toss the pair of dice 20 times, and keep a record of how many times the outcome is (1, 1); and how many times the sum is 4. Give it to student behind you to repeat it again. My calculation indicates that we need about 1000 tosses to be able to tell a difference of 1%. Let us work hard.

What is the probability that none of them were dancing with his own girlfriend?
