It’s a mystery to me…

Suppose you have a 3,000 sq. foot house and it’s two stories, about 1,500 sq. feet of that would be downstairs, right?

Of that 1500 sq. feet, one small office has wall to wall carpet, leaving 98% of the downstairs covered in tile.

If 3% of the tiled area is covered with an area rug, that would leave 95% of the downstairs covered with tile. Still with me?

What is the probability that a 25”x20” bulldog will upchuck on the 8’x10’ area rug that is surrounded by over 1,000 square feet of tile?

P(A \mid B) = \frac{P(A \cap B)}{P(B)}\,


I may not be very good at math, but I can tell you this -100% of the time, the dog will puke on the rug.

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
