Horatio wants Guildenstern to stop going through his phone. Guildenstern has agreed to do so if the last two digits of the next phone number he pulls up form a number that is greater than 49.
Is this a fair method for Guildenstern to decide to stop flipping the coin? Why or why not
Hi Shaniab :)
Well I think that Guildenstein should stop going into Horatio's phone and that there should be no bet!!! LOL
When will the last 2 digits be greater than 49
Well, the second last digit can be 5,6,7,8 or 9 That is 5 choices
and the last digit can be anything at all.
P(last 2 digits are great than 49)= (5/10)*1 = 0.5
So yes this has the same odds as a fair coin toss.
Does that answer the question?
no because it is a Multiple choice question ia m so sorry i left that out i feel awful
