A person has a coin in which lands with a head showing 30% of the time. Express as a decimal the probability that she gets 2 heads and 1 tail when she tosses the coin 3 times.

 

So if a coin is flipped 10 times a head is shown 3 times and the tail is shown 7 times.


But I dont know how to continue

This is a bimomial probability problem

 

We flip the coin  3 times and we need to choose 2 of them to be heads....

 

So we have

 

C(3,2) (.30)^2 (.70)  = 189/1000  = .189  =  18.9%

 

 

cool cool cool
