    Sample Space

    I know what the answer is but I can't think of a way to write it in condensed form.

    "A coin is tossed until heads appear twice in a row. What is the sample space?"

    There are many ways to model this.
    Here is one. The set if all finite bit-strings which contain the string “11” as only the last two entries.
    Example: “01001011”
