DailyDirt: Pi Math

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

National Pie Day is not actually March 14th (although it really should be, if only to make it more memorable). But here's to the number, not the delicious dessert. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    yes it has..


    there is no 'current best statistical tests' it's either a random distribution or it follows some sequence.

    but it is PURELY random distribution, that means if you have a large enough sample size you will get an equal number of all possible value.

    so a number of 100 length will have an relative even distribution of each number and there will be approximately 10 of each.

    That is what a random distribution means

    you cannot 'prove' a truly random distribution, it's either random or it is not.
