Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tttt, tftf, ffff, ftff, tfff, tttf so you have 25% cause its a 50/50 but four times in a row takes out a 25 so i would say 1/6 change of doing that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0obviously shes doing it 6 times but thats not the question bro the question is "the probably of getting heads 4 times out of 6 coin tosses and each coin toss has a 50% chance of being heads so explain to me how its 1/6 @KingCorbin027

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets break it down... if you have to flip a coin six times right ok it haves to sides on a coin right heads and tails right ok so that makes it a 50/50 chance that she will land on heads or tails ok so if she wants to get for heads in a row out of six flip 6 is the ?/6 because we now know is there in our answer ok so take 25 from 50 it gives you 25 right ok now you know cant get for heads in a row twice so you go down one just off what you know and it would be 1/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@KingCorbin027 how if the probability of getting 6 heads in a row is 1/64 bro ? the equation of that is 1/6^6 so the equation for this would make sense if it was 1/6^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or just do 4/1*1/64=4/64=1/16
