Maria has it wrong. Can you come up with all the possible outcomes of this coin toss?
... umm ok?
Fill in this table: |dw:1364248207123:dw| Remember, each coin can only have an outcome of heads or tails.
Tail Tail Head Head Head Tail Tail Head
Right. How many possible different outcomes are there?
It is either B or C I cannot decide
Good. There are 4 possible outcomes. 1 outcome out of 4 is 2 heads (25% probability) 1 outcome out of 4 is 2 tails (25% probabilty) 2 outcomes out of 4 are 1 heads and 1 tails (50% probability)
So it is B?
Correct. The probabillity of 1 heads and 1 tails is 50%, not 33%. That's why I wrote above Maria is wrong. She thought that all three outcomes have the same probabiltity.
Thank you! My teacher puts topics on our semester projects that she hasn't covered yet :P
I guess she's challenging her students. Part of your challenge is to come to OS and ask to try to figure it out. You're welcome.
