About: The last banana: A thought experiment in probability - Leonardo Barichello

Just eat the dice.

One fair way to set up the game: Player 1 wins if the total of the numbers on the dice are odd, and Player 2 wins id the total is even.

Player 1 dies in 8 days. Player 2 dies in 9 days because he ate the banana.

Speaks for itself, doesnt it? So basic...

Beautiful animation! But why should one ever want to play such a boring game?

She’s with a catsway

Actually the coin toss is also unfair when you catch the coin after tossed. You can experiment by tossing 3 times and results are the side which is up when hold 2 times is the result. So to be fair it is wiser to let coin dropped on the ground in cricket games.

Now, what are the probabilities of rolling a 5 or 6 on the very first roll. Hmm

Only in a math problem can a cat and a kid decide to play a game this complex instead of splitting the banana or making a much more simple game. . .

Great video! :)

1. Split the banana 2. Why do they have dice on a deserted island

*how are you smart enough to do this but not cut the banana ?*
How did you get dice on a stranded island

Also nice "animation"

Why argue over the banana when you can have roasted turtle?

God forbid I be stuck on a deserted island with a cat rolling dice over the last banana.

But I've always thought that the number 1 side is slightly heavier because they indent holes into the surface for the number of spots, if this is the case number 6 (the opposite side) would come up more frequently than its 'probability' would claim?

i just wanna know how they got the dice in the first place

Soo satisfying to watch these videos after you learn it's topic. Just had some lessons in college about probability and that's really accurate!

why don't They Just cut it in half

The banana. . . . . finally!!!!

but theres a 2/6 chance of it being 5 or 6, so timesing that gets 4/36. im confused
