This question comes from an exercise in book: If I'm tossing coins. I tossed 2 heads in a row using a coin. What’s the probability now that the next coin will be heads?
Here's what I thought:
Tossing a coin three times are independent events. So,
Probability of getting a head will be 1/2 = 50 percent chance.
Probability of getting a head second time will be = 1/4 = 25 percent chance.
Probability of getting a head third time will be = 1/8 = 12.5 percent chance.
Is this correct? Because the answer says that it would be 50 percent.
