comment The probability of Breakeven On a Coin Toss Game
Ha! Let's forget about the consequences if we don't pay the loan shark for the moment and go the heart of the question, should you keep betting? The probability of a H-T on each flip 50-50. So I can understand that picking Tails on each coin flip shouldn't make a difference. OR...... you can look at from cumalitive perspective. What is the probability I get TTTTT on 5 coin flips, Ans(1/32). What is the probability of getting p(HHHTT), answer 10/32.

Ha! Ya, lets assume no harm can be done to you and the interest is a fair one. Let's just ignore that in this case.

comment Taking a Derivative of a Random Variable
$f$ is a real number. It's the value I am trying to maximize. $w$ is the random variable.

Yes, the stat program. sorry about the confusion, i'll make the edit. thought this forum would be more apt than stack overflow because it really is more of a math question.
