110. question about probabilities
This is great information. Thanks for putting it together. My question won't alter your conclusions, but I like to clarify things I don't understand whenever possible. I'm not a mathematician or a statistician, but I do use statistics a fair amount in my work. It's my understanding that probabilities can only range from 0 (impossible) to 1 (sure chance), so I'm somewhat puzzled by all of the probabilities in the table that are greater than 1.
