If the probability of my flipping a head on any one toss of a fair coin is 1 in 2 this implies that with any two tosses of the same coin, I should expect, statistically, to get (at least) one head.
(Same applies if I was looking to get a Tail, obviously.)
And if you are all correct, which I’m sure you are, that the probability of getting two consecutive heads is 1 in 4, this would imply that I’d need to flip a fair coin 4 times to be reasonably certain, statistically, of getting (at least) one occurrence of two heads.
(Same applies if I was looking to get two consecutive tails, obviously).
Is this correct so far? |
