Live through your Subject - "Probability" Part I21:13 - Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2004

Set:LibraryTime:11:00 amScene I :

'R:" If theres a group of 9 members, out of which 3 are geniuses, what is the probability of a member getting the right answer in first try. B) Probability of another member getting the solution in 2nd try? C)Whats the probability of "H" out of those nine getting the answer not even in the third trial ?? " :P

Kay:" Hmmmm we can change the names event-ually..? *-) "

Me:" Conditions apply... if 'N can get the answer... "H" certainly will. :P .. hey why only US!! :@ "

'N:" Whats the probability of 'H not being from the 3 geinuses. Equally likely chances x:o)!"

Me:" Exactly, like there was a probability 1/38 of the presence of 'a horse' in our class yesterday! "

Kay:" Hehehe, That voice was wonderful...! "

'R:" Truly Professional."

'H:" Can someone do it? "

'I(drowned deep in an example ):" Oh thats Simple! "

All Together:" NIKALO!!! " :D

'I:"The Tree Diagram... "We all BURST into LAUGHTER!!!

Why does this happen?? I've seriously tried all the techniques, from "Almonds" to "Dimagheen", but MATHS seems new to me everytime I dare look at it. Is it Maths or ME, I dont know. But I certainly know now, the more you run away from a thing, the more it gets to you.

Solution lies in the above "scene". You've to indulge yourself in the subject, you've to learn it for the sake of getting knowledge, and not for the sake of just Learning. Never take your subject as burden, but fun [Though I wonder if theres ANY fun at all in Mathematics].

I dont know how successful my Teacher was in teaching us Statistics or Mathematics, but he sure succeeded in endowing us the ability to live through the subject, to treasure it. Now when I open the book I'll be knowing the probability of me understanding the subject, because its part of our lives.

Assalaamu Alaikum, Wa Rahmatullahi, Wa Barakatuhu .. Fee Amanillah.
