 May28 awarded Notable Question Mar16 awarded Autobiographer May18 awarded Popular Question Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses Im still not sure Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses so the only thing that changes is the count of how many flips are left? Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses and with M = 1, 2 + 0.5 * 0 + 0.5 * 14 which is 9 right? Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses Its supposed to be 8 based on the examples but when I calculate it I get 8.5. Here is my calculation: 1 + 0.5 * 1 + 0.5 * 14 Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses My last calculation seems wrong, the number should be lower. I understand it when it comes to M = 1 but when it gets higher I don't know what to do. Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses so 1+0.5*14 = 8 is correct for N = 3, M = 1 and 1+0.5*14+0.5*8 = 12 for N = 3 and M = 2? Jan7 awarded Supporter Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses Thank you, could you do this example: N = 3, M = 2 so I can see if this formula is expanded? Jan7 comment Consecutive Coin Toss with static tosses I know how to do this part, the confusing part is the calculation: 1 + (0.5 * 0 + 0.5 * 6) = 4.0 due to already having 1 heads.
