 Oct 16 awarded Yearling May 22 awarded Famous Question Dec 7 awarded Notable Question Oct 24 awarded Notable Question Oct 16 awarded Popular Question Jul 2 awarded Curious May 19 comment Flip a coin 6 times. What is probability of at least 4 heads? = 42/64, or .65625 (Actually, the Pacers have won the first game, not the Heat. So the probability of the Heat winning the series is 1 - .65625 = .34375) May 19 comment Flip a coin 6 times. What is probability of at least 4 heads? Just to make sure that I understand you: P(Win) is the probability of the Heat winning the series, and P(Win) = (22/64)x(.55/.45) = .420. Is this correct? May 19 comment Flip a coin 6 times. What is probability of at least 4 heads? Thanks very much. I get 11/32 as the answer to my coin flipping question. However, I don't understand why I should "lose the restriction that the odds are only as good as a coin-flip" for these NBA games. Or if I did put the probability of the Heat winning each remaining game at .55, how would I calculate the probability of the Heat winning the series? May 19 comment Flip a coin 6 times. What is probability of at least 4 heads? Yes, I've heard of nCr combinations. 6C4 = 15. May 19 asked Flip a coin 6 times. What is probability of at least 4 heads?

Thanks. Jul 13 accepted Will a point moving on a sphere always at an angle x (0 deg. < x < 90 deg.) to the “equator” reach a “pole”? Jul 13 comment Will a point moving on a sphere always at an angle x (0 deg. < x < 90 deg.) to the “equator” reach a “pole”? The point moving at a constant speed was not built into my question. The answer to my question remains "yes" even if the speed isn't constant. It could even stop repeatedly for finite lengths of time, no? Just wanting to touch all the bases....
