I was once asked to calculate the probability, that someone will come of a lift, in a large tall building?

What information do I require to answer this question correctly?

What probability theory do I use to solve this problem?

Once I have this information, can I apply the same information and theories, increasing the number of lifts and directions of exiting.

Using statistics can I calculate the best place to put a hot-dog stand out side a sports arena.

- if so, can you tell me how - I'm a physicist, I can learn the mathematics but I'll never understand it but perhaps I can learn to visualise it instead.

Regards

Terry Giblin

"The basic element of quantum theory is the double-slit experiment. It is a phenomenon which is impossible, absolutely impossible to explain in any classical way and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality it contains the only mystery ... the basic peculiarities of all quantum mechanics." - Richard Feynman
