Write the sample space for the outcomes of tossing three coins using H for heads and T for tails. HHH, HHT, TTH, TTT o What is the probability for each of the outcomes? o Which kind of probability are we using here? o How come we do not need to have three actual coins to compute the probabilities for these outcomes?...
