Unformatted text preview: Heads/10 86/10 = 8.6 Change this to the average probability of tossing heads. 8.6/16 = 0.5375 or 8.6/16*100 = 53.75% Did anything surprising or unexpected happen in your result for this experiment? No, I expected more heads than tails that is usually how these experiments turn out. 3. write the sample space for the outcomes of tossing three coins using H for heads and T for tails Possible outcomes: T, T, T T, T, H T, H, T T, H, H H, T, T H, T, H H, H, T H, H, H What is the probability for each of the outcomes? 1/8 Which kind of probability are we using here? Classical probability How come we do not need to have three actual coins to compute the probabilities for these outcomes? No coins are needed because we are assuming that each possible outcome is the same....
