# what do you do if you want to reject a girl? watch

Look, if you care that much about getting no negative feelings from them whatsoever, you only have three options: pretending your gay, faking your own death and going out with them. That's it.
as for the 1st immoral, the second impossible, athe 3rd i didnt quite catch

1st is not immoral, 2nd is not impossible, 3rd is obvious. It's a matter of personal preference which you pick.

like i said, tell him blantant, if he dont except it, then you'll know then if his a real GOOD mate or not. if he is he'll except friendship, if he doesnt he'l only want pussy, and your not cheap are you, so his not worth it
Me cheap?! ha! not on your life buddy!.. so yeah, ill do that.

Sigh. First ball. There are 10 balls in the bag. There is a one in 10 chance you will take out the number one ball. Second ball. There are 9 balls left. There is a 1 in 9 chance that you will take out the number two ball. Therefore the chance of you getting the number one ball, then the number 2 ball, is 1 in 10 x 9, or one in 90. Then for the third ball there are 8 balls left, so there is a one in 8 chance you will pic out number 3, and so on. So the probability of you picking out numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 then 10 in that order is 1 in 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 x 8 x 9 x 10, or 1 in 3,628,800. End.
it dont go that way cuz its true what you say but you also have to multiply them being in order, the multiplication you done only counted the possiblity of taking 1 out at a time excluding order factor

hipe it works out, tell me how it came out, i might use that 1 if it was successful, dnt 4get.

What? If you take one ball out at a time, the probability of taking one ball out at a time is 1.
Have I misunderstood?
As far as I am concerned, Zapsta's calculation is correct.

if you studied maths, then you will know that it isnt

Being in order - already accounted for. Taking out more than one at a time - probability is the same. Please tell us why you are in any position to know any different and how the calculation should instead be carried out.

I do.
10. wow, i totally do not do maths.

Well to be honest, although I do AS maths, I only have S1 knowledge of statistics, but I think this is enough to do this problem.
Zapsta's calculation seems right to me. It's certainly the way I would have done it.
12. Yep. I think that the calculation's right. How come maximusmak doesn't think it's right?
We learnt about all that sort of stuff in year 7.

because a resonable resource told me otherwise
14. maximusmak, would you agree that any one of 10 balls could be taken initially, and the 'correct' one has a one in ten chance of being chosen?

What resource?
Was it a maths teacher/ textbook?
16. Okay, sorry, but I'm at GCSE standard, higher level, top set, bottom of class, and even I can tell that Zapsta's calculation is correct.

Lol. I think he's referring to his prophet who also proclaims to know the meaning of life.

I thought as much, but he did say to me earlier when I said your calculation was right, "if you studied maths, then you will know that it isnt."

Yeah, I read that, I didn't get it. I'm doing my further maths a-level, I still think it's right.
