### Roll Of Dice

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