    P(HH) = P(HH | T) + P(HH | F) P(HH | T) = (1/4) (1/2) = 1/8 P(HH | F) = (1) (1/2) = 1/2 P(HH) = (1/2) + (1/8) = 5/8 P(T | HH) = P( HH & T) / P( HH) = (1/8) / (5/8) = 1/5

    in terms of HH outcomes, 2 heads = {HH, HT, TH, TT; HH}, where the first 4 outcomes are from an ordinary quarter, the last outcome is from the fake quarter HH outcome from the true coin = 1, number of outcomes in the experiment = 5 P = 1/5
