If you believe that selecting Power Ball numbersis a random process, that is, a Poisson process,then your chance of winning is 1 in 1000000.
But considering your horoscope today and invokingthe Bayesian theorem, your chance can be 1 in 5.Of course, there are sampling errors of plus-minus….
Gee, I wonder whatis the odd of gettingmy money back
U (1-P) is upper 100(1-P)% confidence limit (or interval) of ,
P is exceedance probability,
2(2N+2; 1-P) is chi-square distribution with 2N+2 degrees of freedom
(No occurrence for 3 components in 10 years, 80% Confidence Interval)
C=3, T=10 yr
U (80%)= Z/C*T
Spill frequency is less than
0.053/yr with 80% confidence
N=4, C=5, T=12 yrs
U(95%) = R*(N/CT)
Fire frequency is less than 0.15/yr
with 95% confidence
