    its a copy/paste from an online assignment, but there is no way to connect to an online school; so its not deletable. Just bewary on how an answer is presented :)

    number of possible outcomes reads vague to me. It sounds like a probability question but it reads terribly to me

    spose we have 4 coins hhhh hhht hhth hthh thhh hhtt 1 4 6 4 1 is the pattern that will emerge for all possible outcomes; giving us a total of 16 if 3 coins are tossed: 1 3 3 1 = 8 outcomes; so x*x aint it and x+x aint it. 2*x aint it either; so if one of those is an exponent, that might be the working solution. 2^4 = 16 2^3 = 8 etc ....

    1 5 10 10 5 1 = 32 = 2^5 so yeah, i think my idea might have merit
