MONTE CARLO SIMULATION
To further understand Monte Carlo simulation, let us examine a simple problem. Below is a rectangle for which we know the length [10 units] and height [4 units]. It is split into 2 sections which are identified using different colors. What is the area covered by the blue color?
Due to the irregular way in which the rectangle is split, this problem is not easily solved using analytical methods. However, we can use Monte Carlo simulation to easily find an approximate answer. The procedure is as follows: 1. randomly select a location within the rectangle2. if it is within the blue area, record this instance a hit3. generate a new location and repeat 10,000 times
BLUE AREA= # HITS x 40 UNITS
THIS CAN ALSO BE USED IN MS EXCEL USING CELLS AS POINTS OF CHOOSING BY THE COMPUTER.
THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOFTWARE THAT CAN CALCULATE THIS
