I apoligise if this is the incorrect forum but it seemed to be most relevant.
Basically I am doing some statistical analysis on game data using standard deviation and upon analysing the data I seem to have forgotten how to work out my percentages so here is to hoping someone can help!
Essentially this is the data I wish to work out;
Drop Chance in area: 12%
Chance of weapon: 59%
Chance of armour: 13%
Chance of rare item: 24%
The way I read this is there is a 12% chance of receiving a drop from an enemy, if this 12% is acheived there is a 59% chance to get a weapon etc.
Now how do I work out what chance I have of receiving a weapon in this zone? taking into consideration the overall drop chance as well as the weapons drop chance. I'm thinking it would be 59% of 12% but my head is current unwilling to work and google is of no help.
Thank you in advance!
