This is a little program I designed to test experimental odds against
theoretical odds.
There is a problem.
After much deliberation, I simplified the formula that I was using to make
the differentiation percentage with, which ended up doing the exact same
thing, just simpler. However, the program still wouldn't work.
The problem is that I don't know how to make a division become a real
number, especially when involving variables. (I know that I can do 2/7.0
instead of 2/7 to make it a real result)
Thanks a lot!
Also, I've got one question involving real numbers in this python..
is there any way that I can limit the number to a certain ammount of decimal
places? will it be rounded or truncated, or automatically rounded up?
Thanks very much!!!
