If the probability of observing a car (read: at least one car) in 20 minutes on a highway is 609/625, what is the probability of observing a car (read: at least one) in 5 minutes (assuming constant default probability)?
(In reply to re(5): One Mean Poisson = Shark
It could be argued that SilverKnight's refusal to change the wording of the puzzle that he found on the Internet, reflects his honesty and integrity. SilverKnight is, after all, a Knight, and I am a Knave at best.
