Q: A Maths Question

 

Scandinavian is being chased by his Mother-in-Law. Scandinavian travels at 5 metres per second, and has a 500 metre head start. Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law travels at 20 metres per second.

 

Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law has two horns, one red and one purple. Every 10 seconds she either grows an additional horn (40% chance) or one of her horns disappears (60% chance). Each new horn is either black, white, red, purple or pink (each is equally probable). If Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law ever has two horns of the same colour, she explodes.

 

What is the probability that Scandinavian will escape?

Ahti oli saarella asuva

Kaukoniemen kainalossa
Oli pellon kynnännässä,
vainon vakoannassa.
Korvalta ylen korea,
kovin tarkka kuulennalta.
Kuulevi jumun kylältä
järyn järvien takoa,
jalan iskun iljeneltä,
reen kapinan kankahalta.
Juohtui juoni mielehensä,
tuuma aivohon osasi:
häitä Pohjola pitävi,
salajoukko juominkia!

I'm still trying to figure out the 'Chicken/Egg' conundrum.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
