This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

If all those little (let's call them fubbies) were allowed to stand wherever they wanted to, but only in one of the positions they're occupying right now, what would be the probability that they would get the wave perfect? Assume that all the fubbies have their own timing at which they'll put their hand up, unaffected by their position. Also assume that there are only $7$ of them, and ignore the ones behind. They make it too hard.

Only in the current position (as shown in gif) the wave is perfect? All other arrangements, its not?

Yup.

Nice Job.
