# Ability to read algebra

This requisite asks whether you can read a sentence that throws in algebra or a mathematical concept, without slowing down too much. For instance, a sentence remarking that in the limit of flipping N coins each with a 1/N probability of coming up heads, the chance of never getting heads is 1/*e*. If that *kind* of sentence is one you can read, you should mark yourself as understanding this requisite, so you will automatically be shown Arbital pages and tabs that invoke math of that level.

(just a comment:

it took me a while to understand …

the coins seem

unusualto me, if they are each with a 1/Nprobability of coming up heads)How?
