Transcript

  • 1. Predicting my future: Roll of dice Is it possible to predict how your life is going to turn out based on random numbers. Well since I can’t anyway find my life predictable, let me see how this works. ../.. Panda
  • 2. 1
    • Used excel to generate the random numbers between 1-6
      • Used the built in RANDBETWEEN(x,y) function where x and y are1 and 6
    • Inserted a column to left for date..
      • Generated series for a year. 366 days including today
    • Replaced the random formulae in column B by values.. Using paste special
      • This is because any change in the sheet was regenerating the random numbers. This could have been a problem when I did further analysis
    ../.. Panda
  • 3. 2
    • Inserted a column on the left for month.
      • Should help me show how a month is going to go
    • Added the column to show a qualitative value of how the day would go
      • 0-2 bad, 3-4 average, 5-6 good
    • Added the cumulative column
      • This should let me draw the line graph showing how it is going to be in the next year
      • Now the problem is that with a cumulative score, the graph can go nowhere except northwards.. Not satisfactory
    • Added the second Logical cumulative column
      • A day which was not better than the previous adds a negative effect to the total cumulative score
    ../.. Panda
  • 4. This is how the cumulative graph will look like.. ../.. Panda
  • 5. 3
    • Made a pivot table to filter out how each month would go..
      • For each month a pie chart shows the breakup of bad average and good days
    • Derived a table (trend worksheet) to see the breakup
      • Gave weightage to each type (9good, 3average and (-)3Bad)
      • Added a line graph to see the trend of how the months are going to be
    ../.. Panda
  • 6. This is how my months are going to be.. ../.. Panda
