Although the experimental probability shows that playing at home gives a certain edge, mathematically the events "winning" and playing at home are completely independent since the 2 events are not linked whatsoever. Just take the example of flipping a dye. The probability of getting a Head = 1/2. If after 1000 flips you get a head, the probability of getting a Head on the 1001 flips is always 1/2 (head & tail are independent)

I'm seeing that 

 

P[win at home] = 0.2 = 0.8 x 0.25 = P[win] x P[at home]

 

therefore the two are independent.

test?

 

You are asking us to give you the answer for a test you are taking?

 

Is your teacher/proctor aware of this?

Not a test but a quiz. I've answered all the other questions I just can't figure this out.

Step right this way and see the side show! An act never before seen in the scientific world!

A retardo turned into a genius before your very eyes! 

 

I think it’s ironic that Killersteve and Rom have posted on the same thread.  Life is imitating art.  

After KillerSteve regresses, we should get some Flowers for Algernon.

We should get some flowers for Rom, too.

You didn’t lose the thread, Nicolas; you never had it in the first place.
