## Are there General methods to distinguish a coded message from the noise?

An important indicator of the quality of encryption algorithms and hash is a uniform probability distribution of the output posledovatelnosti. Suppose we obtained data possibly as a coded message by an unknown arbitrary code. Are there any reliable methods allowing to solve are data of sense or are white noise? What to read...

## Will the dice to fall differently or the same?

There is a platform which throws objects with equal force. On this platform I put 2 dice constantly in the same place, the same party exactly after the next surge. This framework of bones is covered by a dome to external influences could not affect bone. The question of whether the dice to fall differently or always the sam...

## What is wrong with this coin?

Once at the interview I was asked the following problem: there is a curve of the coin, the eagle falls with a probability of 0.49, and tails with a probability of 0.51, as using a coin to hold a fair draw, that is, to two events, whose probability is the same. I'm certainly not an expert in the field, but the decision was c...

## How many rounds happen before the series of n failures?

There is a gap of numbers from 0 to 99.99. Of this period, selects a series of numbers. The program generates each iteration a random number from the first interval. How to calculate how many hits the target number will be (on average), until a series of n failures? The formula should take a chance on success (that is, if t...

## How to derive a suitable formula for the distribution of the probabilities?

Hello! I rewrote this question short. I need to calculate the probability of occurrence of the event (first calculate the probability table with the events, then use it to calculate which event is now dropped). The columns I wrote – it's just a table of distribution the probability of (occurrence) of the event. Example: 65...

## How to calculate the probability of an attack (wounds) in the Board game Spartacus?

Rules of engagement was not difficult. For example, the attacker 5 dice attack, and the defender's 3 dice of protection. Both throw all their dice. Then the dice are sorted in descending order and compared, respectively. If the value on the dice more than appropriate, it is wound. Each cube also gives one wound, if there is...

## If this game is the definition of comparative honest way of taking money?

Good day to all. Many people know that roulette has red, black and zero is a commercial game. That is, casino in the end will always be positive.
