Retina is correct

According to retina's rules from the above quote, his statement is correct when the range is set to an odd number! Code:
evens = [x for x in range(5) if x % 2 == 0] print(evens) for number in evens: evens.append(number / 2) print(evens) break odds = [x for x in range(5) if x % 2 != 0] print(odds) for number in odds: odds.append(number * 2) print(odds) break Last fiddled with by ONeil on 20200908 at 20:16

I can totally understand this theory from the counting of base 5, 7 and 9. Any odd based counting will result in more even numbers.

Haha, for some reason I can't stop laughing. Paraphrasing a famous person, "I know I am stupid, but when I look around, I get wings". Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20200909 at 02:55

An odd number multiplied by an odd number produces an odd number.
An even number multiplied by an odd number produces an even number. An even number multiplied by an even number produces an even number. So there are more possible even number results. Therefore there are more even numbers than odd numbers.

Grrr... You don't need to explain the joke again.
He used "plus" instead of "multiplication". Which makes not only one, but ALL his "equations" wrong. As wrong they are, they "prove" the contrary to your affirmation. But if they should have been right, witn "addition", they still prove your point. Lord's ways are complicate... That's why I couldn't stop laughing. Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20201015 at 09:41

ooooooooo groups into pairs with one left over, a definition of odd. oo oo oo oo o Odd bases will however result in somewhat more rightmost even digits than odd rightmost digits, in randomly or uniformly distributed values. Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20201015 at 14:47
