I created a puzzle about probabilities which, as it happens, is easiest to answer by running a computer simulation.
Three people have provided an answer to this question, all with differing results. They have all, however, reached the same conclusion in response to the bonus question that there is no answer to it.
The problem is that when I compare the results to my own simulations the figures from one of the respondents are close to mine for small numbers of robots, but the results diverge as the number of robots increases and my simulations do give an answer to the bonus part of the question.
I'm am quite prepared to admit that I might have made a mistake with my coding, but this isn't a code review site, so how should I proceed? Should I accept the answer of the person whose figures are close to mine, or should I enter into discussions with all the respondents about differences between their code and mine to see if we can determine the REAL answer?
