I was wondering if anyone was able to generate a large number of skeletons and find average optimal insertions. More details if someone is actually up for this.

Today this CRAZY thing happened. I first got a green cross skip and the next solve was just a 1 move cross.
I really need the answer to what the odds for this to happen is.
So if your good at math please give me the answer.
Heres the scrambles. btw the scrambles were generated on cstimer so OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you get two of a specific VLS case in a row in two specific solves, chance is 1/46656

If you get any two VLS case in a row in two specific solves, chance is 1/216

If you get any two VLS case in a row within a session of 216 solves, chance is about (may not be exactly) 1/2

You get widely different numbers even though all of them are the chance of getting a VLS case in two consecutive solves.
1/46656 vs. 1/216 vs. ~1/2
(it doesn’t have to be VLS, I just picked a set where each human case is equally likely)

If a pll skip is 1/72 would 2 pll skips in a row mean 1/144? And what are the odds of an entire ll skip because that is literally what happened on my first ever solve

So i was doing a solve, and when i got to LSE it was all correctly permuted but the UL and BD edges were misoriented. I calculated that the chance of 2 edges being misoriented but permuted and the rest solved to be about 1/940 including aufs. Correct me if im wrong.

What are the odds of a single, Ao5 and Ao12 all being the same time? I was just doing a little 3x3 and trying to practice it again, and I got a 15.56 single which helped lead to the Ao5 and Ao12 being the same.

Spoiler: Single, ao5 and 12 times/scrambles

is it even possible to get odds on that? that seems incalculable as someone could just solve before the end and wait till the timer hit a certain number

That is true that someone could do that (although I am not sure why someone would purposely do that, unless they were bored), but that is not what happened from me and I was just checking to see if there is a way to calculate my questions above. Does anyone have any idea what the probability is (if there is a way to find out)?

Obviously information about the probability distribution of your times is necessary. If each time is 12.00 with probability 1, then obviously all your averages will also be 12.00. If you somehow know your distribution, a Monte Carlo simulation would probably be the best way to compute the probability.
