[Original.] [Prerequisite: Some knowledge of probability theory, or consent of instructor.] Q. Define "Bernoulli Trials" A. John and his brother Jacob Bernoulli, both Professors of Mathematics at he University of Basel, Switzerland in the late 1600's. Their interests turned to the Theory of Probability, and in 1694 they were accused of organized gambling. In a well-publicized courtroom appearance, John Bernoulli accused the judge of bias, but was overruled. He then demanded that he and his brother be tried *independently*, and this request was granted. The verdict was a tossup.
