I Thought I Should Introduce Myself

  1. Jul 5, 2010 #1
    Hey guys! Whats up? I have signed up for the forums back in April and haven't really been active in posting the forums. So before I start posting, I thought I would introduce myself to you guys. My name is Ivan and I will be attending California State University of Fullerton this coming fall (the first one in my family to attend a university :) ). I will be majoring in Computer Engineering. Science and technology has always interested me ever since I was a little kid. I came to appreciate and love math too. I have taken 2 college classes during my high school career (I wish I would have taken more...). One was during the summer of 2008 and it was College Algebra and the second was C++ programming during Spring of 2010. I'm like the math/science guy of my family and everyone comes to me for help with tech or other problems. I tutor my brothers for math if they need my assistance I tutor college students (which includes my older bro) with their from Pre-Algebra to College Algebra in hopes that they can be interested in math and want to go on to higher levels of math. I love to play different sports, whether it be soccer, basketball, football, tennis, etc. I am open to anything. I also love to play my guitar. I am a really kind, patient, chill guy. So thats pretty much some of who I am. I look forward to interacting with all of you in the Physics Forums. :)

    Hi Ivan92. Consider this problem:

    A mathematician is an avid smoker, but a very peculiar one. He has the habit of always carrying two matchboxes with 100 matches each in both of his pockets and he randomly chooses a pocket to pick a match and light his cigarette with. What is the probability that, after he picks a matchbox and verifies it is empty, the other matchbox still contains n matches ([itex]0 \le n \le 100[/itex])?
