I am working through some problems about probability and seem to be having trouble working through this one in particular. I'd love some help learning how to go about solving problems such as this. A website estimates that 19% of people have a phobia regarding public speaking. If three students ...

The tag elementary-probability has been created recently. The tag-info is currently empty. Do we want such the tag? I'd say that past discussions on meta indicate that tags are not based on level/difficulty of the question, but on the content. For example: Should we require a tag that which spec...

As far as I know, which is to say, not all that well in this case, there already is a distinction by level in probability theory, too. The respective tags are probability and probability-theory. The implications of this, though, are not quite clear. But in any case I feel it is relevant to this discussion. — quid 2 hours ago
Here are links to some past discussions related to the two tags mentioned by quid: The tags (probability) and (probability-theory) and About probability-theory tag. — Martin Sleziak 48 secs ago
In fact one of the suggestions in the past discussions was to rename to .
I was thinking that probability should become elementary-probability, and probability-theory could either be left as-is, or perhaps something like probability-analysis. I do think that questions regarding probability spaces, measure-theory, etc. don't belong in the same boat as "pick k balls from an urn..." — Emily Jan 2 '15 at 20:00

Since the question What is the significance of Convergence/Divergence of Series has been bumped by a spam post, I have used the opportunity and added some tags. definitely fits there. I have also added . and . Feel free to retag if you have some better ideas how this question should be tagged.

There are many ways and mathematical methods to test the convergence or Divergence of a series. What does Convergence or divergence indicate practically in the real world? Why is the convergence of series important?
