CWPE means consistent with previous error. For example, on Quiz#2, if you
made a mistake in the top table finding the critical players, I subtracted points for
the error in the top table. When you filled in the Banzhaf power index in the
bottom table, I looked at your answers in the top table, and even if they were
wrong, if you used your wrong answers to correctly fill in the bottom table, I gave
you full credit in the bottow table and wrote CWPE.
Homework to be discussed in class on Friday, February 18:
Page 144146, problems 1,5,15
Review questions:
1. We have 41 students in our class.
a. If everyone shakes hands with everyone else, how many handshakes will there be?
b. If everyone forms one long line for a picture, how many ways are there to arrange
yourselves?
41!= 3.34525E+49
If you could form a new arrangement every second, how long would it take to form all
the arrangements?
41!= 3.34525E+49 seconds
If you could form 10^12 new arrangements every second, how long, in years,
would it
take to form all the arrangements?
It would take 41!/10^12=3.3E+37 seconds
Divide by 60 to get 5.57542E+35 minutes
Divide by 60 to get 9.29237E+33 hours
Divide by 24 to
get 3.87182E+32 days
Divide by 365 to get 1.06077E+30 years
