    Fair Coin Probabilities

    2)We toss a fair coin.Below 'H' denotes heads and 'T' denotes tails.What is the probability that:

    a)We get HHT in the first three tosses?

    b)We get two H and a T (in any order) in three tosses?

    c)We get all H in the first n tosses?

    d)We get HT in the 12nd and 13th tosses,respectively,if we toss the coin 15 times?

    e)We get the squence HTTH eventually (i.e if we toss the coin infinitely many times)?

    Thank you so much I am waiiting for your msg guys..

    3)What was the set that Russell used to show that there was a paradox in mathematics?

    Too many questions, too little self work shown. What have you done and where're you stuck?

    You need to show your work and say where you are stuck. And surely it is the responsibility of your tutor to provide solutions to the work s/he gives you ....
