You and a friend play a game in which you each toss a coin. You score a point for each head and your friend scores a point for each tail. The first person to score ten points wins. The score is 8 to 6 in your favor. Describe a simulation that completes the game and use it to find an experimental probability that your friend will win.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I found this does it help at all? So in 2 plays there's a 1/4 (.25) chance that you've won, whereas there's a 3/4 (.75) chance that you haven't. In 3 plays your chances of having won are .375, and having not won is the remainder .625. So, I guess you could say that after two plays your chances of having won increase at .5/n where n is the number of plays the 'yintercept' is .25...?
