Steben Posted July 13, 2007 Report Share Posted July 13, 2007 You guys have to understand that when they say there's a 12.5% chance of a female, they doesn't mean that you will get one 12.5% of the time.For each time you try for a female, you have only 1 12.5% chance. And the next time, you still only have a 12.5% chance. Carry this on for two hundred times, and you still might only get one or two females. Heh. I understand that too well, actually. (Math is my major.) However, the chances of getting 20 males and not a single female when there's a probability of 12.5% of getting a female every time you breed, is roughly 7%. Of course, that's before you start. Once I hit 19 males, there was an 87.5% chance the 20th would be male as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
