Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I assume that means the probability of getting a tail 6, 7, 8 , 9, or 10 times? This is binomial probability. If the total coin flips (10) is n, the number of successes (6,7,8,9, or 10) is r, the probability of success (tails) is p, and the probability of failure ( heads) is q, you find \[ P(r) = \frac{n!}{r!(nr)!} p^r q^{nr} \] right? Calculate the probability for r = 6, r = 7, r = 8, r = 9, and r= 10, and add them all together.
