Question

A fair coin is flipped six times. Find the probability that heads comes up exactly four times.

1/16

15/64

90/16

1/4

2/3

Answer #1

solution:

Let X be the discrete random variable representing the No.of heads

Given that

No.of trials (n) = 6

Probability of Head (p) = 1/2 [ since given that it is a fair coin ]

Probability of Tail (1-p) = 1/2

Here, X ~B(n,p)

~B(6 , 1/2)

we know that

P(X=x) = nCx * (p)^x * (1-p)^(n-x)

Probability that Head comes exactly 4 times = P(X=4)

= 6C4 * (1/2)^4 * (1/2)^2

= 15 * (1/2)^6

= 15 / (2)^6

= 15 / 64

Probability that Head comes exactly 4 times = 15 / 64

So,**Option-B** is correct

A
coin is flipped 15 times. find the probability of the following:
p( exactly 4 Heads).
p( at most 2 Heads).
p( at least 3 Heads).
please explain. Thanks

question 3.
A coin has two sides, Heads and Tails. When flipped it comes up
Heads with an unknown probability p and Tails with probability q =
1−p. Let ˆp be the proportion of times it comes up Heads after n
flips. Using Normal approximation, find n so that |p−pˆ| ≤ 0.01
with probability approximately 95% (regardless of the actual value
of p). You may use the following facts: Φ(−2, 2) = 95% pq ≤ 1/4 for
any p ∈...

The theoretical probability of a coin landing heads up is
1/2
Does this probability mean that if a coin is flipped two times,
one flip will land heads up? If not, what does it mean?
Choose the correct answer below.
A.
Yes, it means that if a coin was flipped two times, at least
one of the tosses would land heads up.
B.
Yes, it means that if a coin was flipped two times, exactly
one of the tosses would...
