# What story and TWO-digit Natural Numbers best fit Bayes' Theorem chart?

Why did Madam Monica Cellio close What story and TWO-digit Natural Numbers best fit Bayes' Theorem chart? as duplicate of What story and ONE-digit Natural Numbers explain Bayes' Theorem chart most simply??

The difference is blindingly obvious. The first question seeks an example of Bayes' Theorem with TWO digits. The second ONE digits.

I flagged it as a duplicate. I don't recall seeing the subtle difference, and in any case it's **your** responsibility as the asker of both questions to put them in context with respect to each other: both of them link to an external site but don't mention the other question on this site.

I still believe that both questions should be closed until you edit them to make it actually possible to answer them, by explaining how to quantify the attribute which you want to maximise.

Thinking that I had acted on my own for reasons forgotten, I reopened it in response to this question. The questions do sound awfully similar -- that the methods that answer one would also answer the other -- but I'm not a math expert.

It's now been pointed out that this was flagged as a duplicate by someone who's way more experienced with the subject matter than I am, and I'm feeling bad for having reopened prematurely. I don't want to go back and forth and back and forth, but I'd ask you to at least look over your questions again and address the feedback you've received.
