    Probability Help

    0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1

    Hi, Am i right in thinking that the above array on integers (50/50) is no more likely to occur then the below (0/100)

    1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

    Where 1 and 0 are both equally likely to appear, for example flipping a coin; Tails = 0 and Heads = 1

    Yes.

    The probability of each is \frac{1}{2^{16}}
