Many people think online education can be more expensive than a traditional school setting. Previous generations did not have the option for online learning experience, so why should we start now. An interesting point about online education is that LeBaron (2010) states, “The largest school in the U.S. is the University of Phoenix Online, with a whopping 380,232 students. That’s over 5x more than the largest public school, Arizona State University, which has 68,064 students” (para. 7). I don't think there are a lot of different types of bread. After all, they all contain the basic ingredients: flour, water, butter, yeast, olive, sugar, salt, oil, seed, sunflower, money, etc. Please enter a paper. Your paper must contain no less than 250 words and no more than 150,000 words. But I don't want to enter an essay because I feel as though this is an invasion of privacy. Sometimes I wonder just how long it would take to write 250 words. There has never been so many non coherent words written. I don't know where we are going or what we are we are all pieces of Gauguin's painting. There are days when I wonder what all this is for. Not the general day to day stuff but all of this. Randomness is the lack of pattern or predictability in events.[1] A random sequence of events, symbols or steps has no order and does not follow an intelligible pattern or combination. Individual random events are by definition unpredictable, but in many cases the frequency of different outcomes over a large number of events (or "trials") is predictable. For example, when throwing two dice, the outcome of any particular roll is unpredictable, but a sum of 7 will occur twice as often as 4. In this view, randomness is a measure of uncertainty of an outcome, rather than haphazardness, and applies to concepts of chance, probability, and information entropy.

According to Ramsey theory ideal randomness is impossible especially for large structures, for instance professor Theodore Motzkin pointed out that "while disorder is more probable in general, complete disorder is impossible".[2] Misunderstanding of this leads to numerous conspiracy theories[3].

The fields of mathematics, probability, and statistics use formal definitions of randomness. In statistics, a random variable is an assignment of a numerical value to each possible outcome of an event space. This association facilitates the identification and the calculation of probabilities of the events. Random variables can appear in random sequences. A random process is a sequence of random variables whose outcomes do not follow a deterministic pattern, but follow an evolution described by probability distributions. These and other constructs are extremely useful in probability theory and the various applications of randomness.
