strike that cause it will take forever ok what is the probability that 1 TA will get exactly 5 heads?
dan815
  • dan815
im thinking its like this for 1 TA
dan815
  • dan815
i dunno im kinda confused about this whole thing
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
hmm let me think.... ughh I'm so annoyed we did this in 6th grade why can't I remember...
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
at least not all 3 duh ok
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
ok so you would think that it would be more likely right
dan815
  • dan815
hmm
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
but coins are weird because the prob for hhhhhh= prob for tthhtt
dan815
  • dan815
is itt like this
dan815
  • dan815
for 1 TA getting 5 heads
dan815

FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
i'm thinking \[the~probability~for~1~TA~is~ (\frac{1}{2})^5\]because they have to be in a row
dan815
  • dan815
but it says they just need to get 5 outta 10
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
oh shoot hmm well that would be one half to the 10th that tells us the total combinations
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
then we take out anything that has more than 4 tails
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
5*
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
but we need permutations don't we
dan815
  • dan815
i think u are right (1/2)^5 for 1 TA
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
if that is right then if we cubed it that would be for all three to get it but if we added them that would be for 1 right?
dan815
  • dan815
that (1/2)^5 * 3 for 1 of the 3 having 5 heads gotta add the probability of 2 of them getting 5 heads and 3 getting 5 heads so + [(1/2^5)^2] *3 + [(1/2^5)^3]
dan815
  • dan815
yeah all probability gotta equal 1
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
can't equal one
dan815
  • dan815
im not sure though if the probability shud be 1/2^5
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
neither am I let me call in @hero
dan815
  • dan815
does that look right for a dice if that is right then i guess u can just use that way for the coin too
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
ok... hmm that looks right but i'm just not sure it's been so long since i've taken prob and stats
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
you need to learn to write in LaTex...
dan815
  • dan815
what is that
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666

  • FibonacciChick666
but pretty much \[you~write~like~this~for~math~stuff~~~~~~~~~~[\frac{1}{2}]^5\\]

  • dan815
do you just type that out or use Equation button down there
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
type it out
dan815
  • dan815
o wow lol
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
it is a free program for writing in math
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
but that is the same as using the eq button down there
dan815
  • dan815
hbey I THINK I GOT IT NOW

the answer cant be one...

dan815
  • dan815
no mean 1 - whatever that is equal to is our answer
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
ohhhhh uhm maybe i honestly stopped thinking about it
dan815
  • dan815
i think iam addicted to these questions, i cant stop till i solve when someone asks these questions lol its gonna bug me for ever
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
i know but it's 3 am here...
dan815
  • dan815
so are u on summer vacaation yet
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
yep :) for 2 weeks then summer classes you?
dan815
  • dan815
nice, i got time till summer classes, my summer classes is in 2nd term of summer dunno when that is
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
lucky i have like 28 credits over the summer :/
dan815
  • dan815
wow u took way too much in summer lol
dan815
  • dan815
how are u gonna keep up! is ur summer term as long as the regular term
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
uhm kind of.... i'm not sure though cause i also work like 35 hours a week
dan815
  • dan815
i dont think id be able to do it, unless its like all electives
dan815
  • dan815
even then its gotta be some super easy BS on exam electives
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
i have PDE, single variable calc proofs, a linguistics intro course, an art class, cog. psych, and more that i forget lol
dan815
  • dan815
oo PDE :)
dan815
  • dan815
MATH MAJOR
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
ohhh yea should be fun
dan815
  • dan815
we did some PDE toward the end of this year but i dont think its like indepth as ur PDE class
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
yep haha and in the fall i have abstract algebra, ODE, topology or something (math elective) ASL 3 uhmmmand something else haha
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
and prob not this class is going to suck massively
dan815
  • dan815
its gonna be like that Heat equation wave equation and laplace right then using fourier series to solve?
dan815
  • dan815
thats as far as we got, just doing simple boundary value problems with that
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
... were you following me on here tonight? lol
dan815
  • dan815
whaatt do u mean
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
i just answered a PDE on here earlier lol
dan815
  • dan815
oh haha
dan815
  • dan815
i just had to cram all that stuff for my exam a couple days ago T_T
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
yucky
dan815
  • dan815
it was a feather trying to learn fourier series and PDE in 2 days, I was actually gonna give up on the exam.. i went to my mom and was like NO MORE!! I WILL take this in summer
dan815
  • dan815
but she gave me this huge LECTURE ON stick it out, just believe GOD
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
I had linear algebra personally but that sounds dreadful which class?
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
...math gods?
dan815
  • dan815
lol
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
I know I usually pray to bolzano or laplace hbu? haha
dan815
  • dan815
lmao, just Jesus for me :)
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
ok if that works for ya haha
dan815
  • dan815
it dooess!! we seen too much to not believe in god
dan815
  • dan815
i actually used to be a drug addict and stuff, till I heard God, and my addictions everything even coffee addiction i dunno how lol, just went away over night
dan815
  • dan815
like my addictions were really really bad, i cudnt control it i cudnt get throught out a day if i wasnt high, not even 5 - 10 mins xD
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
thats cool for you and i'm happy you are no longer an addict
dan815
  • dan815
yep :)
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
i am still a firm believer in skepticism however
dan815
  • dan815
haha thats fine, i wud have never believed it till it finally happened to me
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
I was raised wayyyy too catholic, then I started thinking on my own and yep. that is how i am where i am now
dan815
  • dan815
thats cool
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
but oh well, differences aside i think i'm heading to sleep/work so i'll talk to ya again soon and I'll answer this later today when I've slept a little haha
dan815
  • dan815
okay good night sleep well :)
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
Night! and you too!
dan815
  • dan815
love you lol..
dan815
  • dan815
saying good night is a very touchy time i feel

HEY THIS IS THE RIGHT ANSWER

he probability of getting 5 heads in 10 tosses =10C5(1/2^5)(1/2^5)=252/1024=0.2461.SIMILARLY the probability of not getting five heads=1-0.2461=0.7539. now the probability of three students not getting 5 heads =(0.7539)^3=0.4285 so at last the probability of atleast one student get exactly five heads =1-0.4285 which is 0.5715

  • dan815
that is the probability for 1 TA getting 5 outta 10 flips as heads so for atleast 1, or otherwise, inpreted as when none of the TAs get 5 outta 10 = 1-(10 choose 5/2^10) ^3= prob of all 3 TA not getting 5 in a row so 1- prob of all 3 TA not getting 5 in a row = answer
