Here's the question you clicked on:

what is the probability of getting tails five times in a row with a two-sided coin
It would be (1/2)^5 because the probability of getting tails is 1/2 and you're flipping 5 coins
you want to draw a tree diagram. do you know how to do that?

have you seen something like this?
you should stem it into 5 events with the different possibilities and then see how many of the branches lead up to having 5 ts in a row.
it should be 1/32 possibilities.
because there are 32 ways you can have t and h put together 5 times.
hthhh, hthht, hthth, hthtt, htthh, htthht, httth, htttt, hhhhh, hhhht, hhhth, hhhtt, hhthh, hhtht, hhtth, hhttt thhhh, thhhht, ththh,ththt, thtth, etc
so the only one that lines up is 1/32 combinations.
i am guess this is stats right?
More like 2nd grade algebra lol
Ah, I see. Well, I like the simplicity of your answer. I'm taking stats, and oh my gosh. You have to come up with all of these reasons for why you have your answer! haha
I opt-ed out for stats for calc instead :P
Oh I see, I'm taking pre-cal right now and next will be stats in August. How was Calc?
Easy. Just simple memorization
Good to know!! I will definitely commit to sleeping then, so I can consolidate my memory! ;)
