Zombie Maths 11: Probability

December 13, 2011


Shark attack

What is the probability of being attacked by a shark while walking around the earth?

According to National Geographic 70 people are attacked by sharks each year.

70 people are attacked by sharks each year and 3.22 Billion people can swim (see above).

.

We will assume they swim in the sea.

The probability is 70 in 3.22 billion or

1 in (3.22/70) billion =  1 in .046 billion

or

1 in 46,000,000

What is the probability of

Zombie being eaten by a shark?

But Zombie spends 1.42 years in water when walking around the earth. He is more likely to be gobbled up.

.

BUT the probability is soooooo low ZOMBIE will be OK

and

she might even eat a SHARK!
