on the monopoly
board because it is the mathematically
hardest to hit spot
. Strange you say?
Not at all. Look at is this way
All spaces have, by default
, an equal chance
of being hit, assuming you can stand on the squares
before it. You can be on any sqaure on the board, except Go To Jail
, as it sends you to jail
. So any space after Go to Jail has a dimished chance of being hit.
Seven is the easiest
number to roll on two six-sided dice.
that will allow you to roll seven are:
- 1 and 6
- 2 and 5
- 3 and 4
- 4 and 3
- 5 and 2
- 6 and 1
(Its the only number that can be accomplished
no matter what number the first
die rolls, in a two die situation. One in Six of all 2d6
die rolls therefore
are seven). This has been mathematically proven
time and time again. What is seven
spaces behind after Go To Jail? Park Place, making it the hardest to hit space on the board
! (There is even a card that goes to Boardwalk
, making Park Place a very coveted property)
Following the math out a bit more Luxury Tax
and the Chance
next to Boardwalk are the second hardest to hit spots on the board (6 and 8 are the second easiest numbers to roll).
