In problem 3-19, Eddie and Tana were flipping three coins. Tana later found out that Eddie was using weighted coins (coins that were not fair), so the probability of getting heads for each coin was
Would this change the sample space?
The sample space remains the same but the probabilities would change.
Recalculate the probabilities for each of the following events for the weighted coins.
One head and two tails
At least one tail
Exactly two tails
There are three ways this can happen.
HTT, THT, TTH
P(at least one tail) = 1 – P(no tails)
