Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2And 2 outcomes possible. So the probability it will land with the white side up is 1/2 and the probability it will land with the black side up is 1/2. All of the previous flips do not affect the outcome of the 16th flip. Each flip or toss is an independent event.
