How to calculate Dilbert error
Posted:
Apr 23, 2005 1:23 PM


Hello, helpful people,
On April 22, 2005, the Dilbert comic strip contained what I think is a monumental math error, but I'm not sure.
And even if I am right I'm not sure how large that error is.
Please take a look at the part of my web page that starts at http://barelybad.com/fpdilbert.htm#permutations and let me know whether I've said anything wrong. Note that there's a link to the Excel spreadsheet I used, if that's of any help.
Thanks for any and all criticism you can heap on me. I want to get this right.
