n / (2n - 1)?

also what kind of socks come in left/right?

Indeed. You got there a lot faster than me, but I expected no less.

And it’s these ones

I do notice the difference when I put on the wrong side.

Although you blame some of your mistakes on a dodgy map - maybe some can be attributed to dodgy socks? Maybe some of your aiming off problems are caused by overly left-footed-ness...

Now that you mention it, I was too far left on all three of my 1’ mistakes.

This is a decent read.

Presents some nice ways to understand reasoning using probability and statistics without hiding behind the mechanistic use of equations ... except for the chapter on Bayes theorem, which I had felt I understood pretty well until I read this.

Now you've done that one, repeat for creatures with n sets of socks for their m feet. You did the case m=2. Assume that each of the m socks are different (in winter humans do the case m=4 if wearing both gloves and socks, and especially if German-speaking and wearing both Handschuhe and Schuhe (mit Socken)).

I have before today realised I was wearing mismatched socks labelled L and R which turned out to be large and regular sized...

Which of course is all right if you have different sized feet.
