A box contains 2 gold coins and 3 silver coins. One coin is randomly taken from the box and that coin is tossed times. We learn that the coin came up Heads on exactly one of the tosses, but we don’t know which toss. Given this observation, what is the probability that the coin chosen was silver? Give your answer in terms of and . ¥ ¦ ¦ ¦   ¨ § © ¦ § G T f` as as as , i  r¥ i h¦ g i h¦ g g h¦ i y £¡ ¤¢ p q¥ g ECA x¤¥ D B  g3EC5x¤¥ D BA g D BA 3EC5x¤¥ 9@ 9@ 9 @ £ £  £   £¤¢ ¡ £¤¢ ¡ £¡ ¤¢  r¥ sq¥ p q¥ H P¡  i  f¤¥ 9 I p w¤¥ 9 I s w¤¥ 9 I g h¦ £  £   ‚ „ #ƒ y G 2 £¡ P¢ and therefore and therefore and therefore , s t¥   V XV ) ¢YWU PG for the 3 specific cases: £¡ P¢ ` aT   ¨ § ©    ¨ § © £ , so , so , so ebb !dcU T  £Pv ¡ £Pv ¡ £¡ Pv  €¥ pu¥ s u¥ 9I 9I 9 I then then then be the   ASB RQ ¦) G DB   ECA ¤¥ ¥ 87¦ H ¤¡P£ £ H P¡ 9 I  GFEC6¤¥ D B A ¥ 87¦ H ¤¡ 9 @ 63¨©5423#"!©10$%$#"!© 2  ¨ § )  ¨  ©  ¨ §   ¨ © ¨ § $%$('&©  § &©  ¨  ©  ¨ §  $%$#"!© What is your answer in the limit as £¤¢ ¡ £¤¢ ¡ £¡ ¤¢  €¥ su¥ p u¥ If If If tosses of the coin is Heads, and let , which is ¨ ¥ SOLUTION: Let be the event that exactly one of event that the chosen coin was silver.
