# Math Help - Really interesting probability problem! I need help, please!

1. ## Really interesting probability problem! I need help, please!

suppose a fair coin is tossed. If we get heads, a green hat will be placed in Rafael's hat. If we get tails, a yellow hat will be placed in Rafael's head. Rafael is asked to guess what color his hat is. Is there any way for Rafael to maximize his chances of guessing the right colour?

2. If the problem that is written is word for word, then the answer is for him to say whatever color his hat is. It does not ask the color of the hat on his head, and it does not say he owns either hat.

If this is not the case I believe it is just a 50/50 shot between the two.
