There's an indeterminate amount of boxes
If you open a box,there's a 10% chance an apple is inside it
What are the odds of you getting a box with an apple on your 10th try?
>>
>>53369190
I'm unable to determine it, since I have no idea how many boxes there are.
>>
100% from the looks of it.
>>
>>53369190
If I only open 10 boxes then it's a 1 percent chance to get an apple
>>
>>53369190
on your tenth try? 10% it doesnt matter whether the other ones are apples or not, thats just gamblers fallacy. by your tenth try? who knows
>>
>>53369200
The amount of boxes you choose to open is on you
>>
>>53369190
>on your 10th try
10%
which is a different question than
>by your 10th try
>>
>>53369270
indeterminate has nothing to do with me, anon. If OP told me there were 10 boxes, I could open 10, but since we have no idea, I cannot give an answer. The answer is unknowable.

sorry brainlets, this isn't the thread for you, unfortunately.. :((
>>
>>53369325
Yeah, I'm not here to jerk off over something no one can answer. If you want to get gay and spam insults at random people, that's on you, nigger.
>>
>>53369325
I know that the chance is dependent of the total amount of available boxes.
>>
>>53369190
0,03874%?

10!/1!9! * 0,1^1 * 0,9^9 = 0,3874%

There are 10 possible combinations.
The odds of you getting a box with an apple on your 10th try is therefore 1/10.

I'll give you brainlets a hint:
>it's 10%
it doesn't matter how many you open before or after, that doesn't change that the chance of getting an apple is 10% when you open a box.
>>
>>53369325
As if being a 35 years old virgin wasn't enough.
>>
>>53369391
There's potentially no boxes to open, retard.

there are AT LEAST 10 boxes, retard.

pro tip: 1/10= 10% :)
>>
>>53369368
Aren't you off by a factor of 10? 3,874%?
>>
>>53369368
>>53369401
Hold up. I am retarded.

> 10!/1!9! * 0,1^1 * 0,9^9 = 0,3874%
10!/1!9! * 0,1^1 * 0,9^9 = 0,3874

My revised answer is 3.874%

I was, stupid mistake, I have not done this for a while.

You just shake boxes until you find one with an apple in it. Then you open that box. 100% chance on the first try.
>>
>>53369463
Smartest person in this thread.
>>
>>53369463
BAYSTE, but originally
>>
50% apple is either there or not
>>
if theres a garuntee that theres an apple amongst the 10 then its 100%, if there isnt then it remains 10%
>>
>>53369588
You never find any boxes. 0%

Trials 1-9 can either be an Apple or Empty box, and we don't care about any trials after the 10th.
So there's a 1/10 chance you'll get an Apple on your 10th box.
>>
>>53369190
10%
Unless you meant to ask the probability of getting an apple /by/ your tenth try
>>
>>53369190
The probability of getting an apple on your tenth try is 10%
The probability of getting an apple by your tenth try is (rounded up to whole percentages) 24%
