17 THE MOST RANDOM NUMBER
Transcript of 17 THE MOST RANDOM NUMBER
I asked several people to choose a number between 1-20 to see which random number they would choose. I found when I asked people to choose a random number they did pick "17". There are many theories that say "17" is the most common random number chosen but the results are conclusive. There are many surveys that explain but none are conclusive. Human minds like to follow patterns, lucky numbers, and are less likely to choose a random number. When forced to choose a random number people tend to look for the numbers that seem to be less common, such as prime numbers. This probably explains why we choose prime numbers more often as compared to other numbers. Between 1-20 there are 8 of them; 1,4,6,8,9,10,12,14 and 20 . The numbers 2 and 5 can be ruled out from being too common. Then you have 3,7 and 13, these have been known to be lucky and unlucky numbers. That leaves 11,17 and 19 of these three numbers why people prefer to choose this number remains a mystery. By the way when people where asked to pick a number 1-100 most people chose 37.
Will "17" be the most popular number chosen if asked to pick a number between 1 and 20?

My hypothesis was wrong because after asking several people they chose "17" more often than any other number. I guess the surveys I read were pretty accurate.
