Algebra Q (reposting with corrected notations)

  1. Mar 4, 2011 #1
    Is there a way to solve for A and B which are probabilities when:

    AN + BL = 1
    (1 - A)^(M-1) x = k
    (1 - B)^(M-1) y = k

    It s ok to solve it for the limit case as N, L, and M go to infinity.

    I'm not sure what you're looking for, but [tex]A=1-\sqrt[M-1]{\frac{x}{k}}[/tex] and [tex]A=1-\sqrt[M-1]{\frac{y}{k}}[/tex]...
