Monty Hall problem- a peek through simulation

I am taking this STATE-80 course from Harvard Extension School. This course teaches commonly used distributions and probability theory. The instructor Hatch is a really good teacher and he uses simulation for all the demonstrations along with the formulas. In week 6, we revisited the Monty Hall problem which we played on the first day of class. If you have not heard about it, I quoted from the wiki: Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats.

Align multiple ggplot2 plots by axis

I used to use cowplot to align multiple ggplot2 plots but when the x-axis are of different ranges, some extra work is needed to align the axis as well. The other day I was reading a blog post by GuangChuang Yu and he exactly tackled this problem. His packages such as ChIPseeker, ClusterProfiler, ggtree are quite popular among the users. Some dummy example from his post: library(dplyr) library(ggplot2) library(ggstance) library(cowplot) # devtools::install_github("YuLab-SMU/treeio") # devtools::install_github("YuLab-SMU/ggtree") library(tidytree) library(ggtree) no_legend=theme(legend.
