I have a question about my Mathematics Stack Exchange post: Help with understanding an example from the book 'Fooled by Randomness'
Dear all, I just spent a few hours today after reading the same book excerpt and trying to understand its calculations.
Although there is an accepted answer to the same question that I had after reading the book and this question being an old question, it was not clear on how to get to the same results presented in the book.
Before my answer, it was not clear the mathematics steps to get there (z-score and probability calculation).
I had some effort starting from the accepted answer to reproduce the results. So I decided to contribute with this information on the question. I think that my answer to this old question supports a better understanding of how to get there, but a downvote was given to it.
My question is: Is that an automatic downvote from the system based on rules such as oldness of the question or been already answered despite the contribution that I think that I made?
