Let's see, sometimes there's two, sometimes three, sometimes 4.... I wonder if there is a mathematical way to come up with an average of say, the last two weeks... aren't there some Germans in this forum?

A=S/N
"A = average (or arithmetic mean)
N = the number of terms (e.g., the number of items or numbers being averaged)
S = the sum of the numbers in the set of interest (e.g., the sum of the numbers being averaged)"

(courtesy of http://www.platinumgmat.com/gmat_stu...tatistics_mean)


So in your example of "sometimes" over a 3 day period would be

A=(2+3+4)/3
A=9/3
A=3

In this case the average would be 3. Over a two week period it would be A=(sum of articles a day)/14

And I'm not German

Sure, German here… and the average of the last 14 days (14th till 27th = 14 days) is 2.71428571428571 news per day

Question 4: Moving away from math questions, and questions that can easily be answered with Google, we separate the men from the boys....

You just raised your scope and this is what you see: what is the class of this submarine?

My pleasure, and good job!

Next question, this is a tough one, Google won't help you much.

During WWII, a US politician compromised a very important secret of the Silent Service. Who was the politician and what was the secret?

This one is for the bona fide submarine history scholars out there.

Default May day for real

Congressman Andrew May gave away the depth capability of US submarines allowing Japanese destroyer to readjust their depth settings
Historian Clay Blair claimed that May was responsible for a major release of highly confidential military information during World War II, known as the May Incident. In that incident, U.S. submarines had been conducting a successful undersea war against Japanese shipping during World War II, frequently escaping Japanese anti-submarine depth charge attacks. However, the deficiencies of Japanese depth-charge tactics were revealed in a press conference held in June 1943 by Congressman May on his return from a war zone junket.At this press conference, May revealed the highly sensitive fact that American submarines had a high survival rate because Japanese depth charges were typically fuzed to explode at too shallow a depth. Various press associations sent this leaked news story over their wires and many newspapers (including one in Honolulu, Hawaii), published it.
It was subsequently discovered that Japanese naval antisubmarine forces were adjusting their depth charges to explode at a deeper depth. Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood, commander of the U.S. submarine fleet in the Pacific, later estimated that May's security breach cost the United States Navy as many as ten submarines and 800 crewmen killed in action, stating "I hear Congressman May said the (Japanese) depth charges are not set deep enough. He would be pleased to know (they) set them deeper now." A report from the U.S. Navy's Pacific Submarine Fleet determined that Japanese ASW forces failed to uncover the maximum test depth ability of U.S. fleet submarines during the war. However, the report made no finding as to whether Japanese ASW forces altered their depth charge attacks to deeper settings as a consequence of May's revelation to the press. Actually google had it in 10 seconds but then I'm bona fide!
