I am having trouble with this one, specifically what the question is asking fair and the term 'fair', I have read through my notes and havent come across it. Just not sure what I'm supposed to solve here
Two siblings are fighting over who gets to sit in the front seat during the drive to the movies. To resolve the fight, the mother gives them a coin and says “Ashley, flip this coin”. Then after seeing the result says, “Okay, now it’s your turn to flip the coin Jesse. If it lands differently than it did for Ashley, you get the front seat”.
(a) If the coin is balanced (ie.
P(Heads) = 1/2 ), is this a fair way to decide who sits in the front seat? explain
(b) Suppose the coin is not balanced, and lands on Heads 3/4 of the time. Is this method still fair? If not, which child is more likely to end up in the front seat?
