Additionally. One coin is allready heads, so it's not really part of the equasion. Therefore we're only concerned with the probability of the second coin. So the above percentage is correct.

The interesting part is, that anyone past high school knows this is 1/3. And everyone knows, that the only reason OP posts this, is because he was stupid enough to answer 50% himself, and now tries to find underaged people to answer wrong, so he himself can feel better about himself...

Goddamn, you are fucking retarded.

Conditional probability, anon.

The probability of event A (both heads) given event B (at least one heads)

Probability of at least 1 heads for 2 coin flip = 0.75

probability both are heads for 2 coin flip = 0.25

0.25 / 0.75 = 1/3

In the pic, TT is removed from the sample space as it is no longer a possibility GIVEN AT LEAST ONE coin landed heads.

>True. But that's a different scenario to OP question.

We dont know how the first heads is produced, so how can you say its different? He might just be placing a coin on the floor with the heads side up and then flipping the other coin. All we know is that 1 side is quaranteed to be heads and if you flip 2 coins at the same time 1 coin has to have 2 heads or it will not be quaranteed anymore.

If you ask me, you need to know how the guaranteed heads is produced before you can tell me that the answer is ONLY 33%.

Did he flip them at the same time untill atleast 1 of them landed heads? If so the answer is 33%.

Did he throw them separately and checked the first coin to be heads to avoid a situation of 2 tails? Or does 1 of the coins have heads on both sides?

>Yeah, but what if one of the coins lands on its' edge?

>>683088980

I know, dumbass.

There are still 3 equally probable ways to get at least 1 heads coin for a 2 coin flip.

Why are you having such a hard time grasping this simple fact.?

>>

In probability, you have to account for all possible results even if the end result is the same.

3 red balls and 4 green balls are in a box. You are trying to figure out the probability of picking out two red balls when you pick out two balls at once out of the box. The correct answer would be 3C2 / 7C2 as opposed to 1C1 / 7C2 because you have to distinguish between each red ball. Similarly, in this question you have to distinguish between H/T and T/H, making the answer 1/3

Sound more like you're stuck on 1/3 and are too inflexible to include new data into your theory.

No, I'm not.

Allow me to explain:

It does NOT matter if the coins were flipped simultaneously, or if they were flipped sequentially, or if a single coin was flipped twice.

In all situations where at least one coin (or flip) landed heads, the probability that both coins (or both flips) landed heads is 1/3

>im interested in seeing how close minded you really are.

I'm not close-minded, anon. I just have the correct answer to a pretty basic conditional probability question.

No. Anon, this is a basic conditional probability question. For a regular 2 coin lip, there are 4 equally probable outcomes:

HH

HT

TH

TT

We are told that at least 1 coin landed heads, which eliminates the probability of TT ocurring from that point forward. Only 3 equally probable outcomes remain possible

HH

Anecdotak evidence, which is fine, since I don't have a clue about statistics

>>

>>683091037

You are correct.

We know that 1 of the outcomes will be H.

Thus, P(H|T) = 100% and P(T|H) is 50%.

P(H|H) is also 50%.

>>

>>683084521

How about you shove those coins up your ass faggot?

>>

>>683091190

you must be really stoopid anon

1 result is always a given H.

it doesn't matter that you flip 2 coins because 1 is always H.

the other one has 50% chance to be H or T.

so you getting HH is also 50%.

it's literally like flipping one single coin and asking will it be H just like the other one?

or will it be T?

so 50%

>>

>>683091255

Are you really this stupid?

The offset from >>683090751

was correct. You originally start with the following cases:

HH

TT

TH

HT

However, we know one side is already heads, thus the only possible outcomes are

> HT

> HH

Now why is TH not included?

Because it's the same as TH.

You're not going to to throw a third different kind of combination here.

Your second coin can only be Tails or Heads.

If you really dont understand this, I cannot help you. Probability is indeed counter intuitive, but the situation where you keep all 4 situations in mind only applies when the 2 coins need to be tossed, not when only one coin is being tossed.

>>683091463

Also, the answer is 50%.

>>683091584

It's not the same.

There are three outcomes -

HH

HT

TH

The probabilities for these are

H given H -> 50%

H given T -> 100%

T given H -> 50%

because if the first drop is a T then the second drop MUST be H. Thus, the entire outcome depends on a single roll, and a single independent roll (independent meaning that A|B is the same as A) is 50/50.

I'm only going to explain this once. So pay attention.

Anyone who says the answer is 1/2 or 50% is either trolling, misreading the question, or just plain retarded.

Now,

Imagine two coins; coinA and coinB. In fact, conceptualize it in your mind. You take two coins and, using a Sharpie, you mark one of the coins 'A' and the other coin 'B.'

Got that? Are you picturing it? Splendid.

Now you flip both of them.

The possibilities are as follows;

coinA = heads & coinB = heads (HH) 1/4 or 25%

coinA = heads & coinB = tails (HT) 1/4 or 25%

coinA = tails & coinB = heads (TH) 1/4 or 25%

coinA = tails & coinB = tails (TT) 1/4 or 25%

Can you see and understand how heads-tails (HT) and tails-heads (TH) are two distinct and separate possibilities?

No? Congratulations, you're retarded!

Yes? Great, we shall continue.

Now remember that the question states nothing about which coin lands heads, we are only told that AT LEAST ONE of the coins lands heads. This is important, because that statement implies that it could be EITHER COIN.

Note: Nothing about sequence is mentioned. This is also important. There is no 'first coin' and there most certainly is no "the first coin is heads.' No. The question says nothing like that, so don't add information that you can't possibly fucking know and just work with what we've got.

If you have more than two brain cells to rub together, then you understand that there are 4 equally probable/likely possibilities, as shown above.

Now, since we are told that AT LEAST ONE of the coins lands heads, we know that tails-tails (TT) is no longer a possibility. So we are left with three possibilities, of which heads-heads is just one;

HH

HT

TH

The answer is 1/3

>>

The wording of this problem sucks real bad.

>>

>>683092134

Hahaha, no. You are not a lecturer in anything, you are an edgy 14yo.

>>

>>683092146

50% because TH = HT since the order is redundant.

>>

Now, the next item that needs to be explained to the intellectually challenged is this:

heads-tails (HT) is NOT the same as tails-heads (TH) in logical/probability terms.

This is important and I'm going to explain why. I asked you to conceptualize marking each coin with a Sharpie in the OP. If you still don't understand why HT =/= TH after doing this, then read on:

Take two different coins. Let's say, a penny, and a quarter. Each coin has a 50% chance of landing either heads or tails. You flip both coins. What are the possible outcomes? Well, let's see:

penny = heads & quarter = heads

penny = heads & quarter = tails

penny = tails & quarter = heads

penny = tails & quarter = tails

4 possible outcomes. Each of them equally likely to occur (25% or 1/4)

Now, surely we can all see how the results,

penny = heads & quarter = tails

and

penny = tails & quarter = heads

are different, right? Surely you can see how these are two distinct, separate and equally probable outcomes, yes?

Great, let's continue. Now, it DOES NOT MATTER if you are using two identical coins. HT & TH are two distinct results, and the probability of at least one of them occuring is TWICE the probability of a HH or TT outcome. Remember HT(1/4) + TH(1/4) = 1/2.

So, since we know that TT can't be the result in the OP question, it is discarded, and we are left with the possible outcomes:

HH (1/4)

HT (1/4)

TH (1/4)

Three equally probable outcomes containing at least one heads, hence the answer = 1/3

>>

>>683092146

hahah, no bruh.

tl;dr.

It's 50%

>>

Without the condition specified, the sample space for the problem is

S = {(H & H), (H & T), (T & H), (T & T)}....(|S| = 4)

Since the event E = TT does not satisfy the condition that there is at least one head, the sample space is

S' = {(H & H), (H & T), (T & H)}....(|S'| = 3)

Thus, given that at least one head is tossed, the probability of two heads is

P(H & H) = 1/3

A more mathematical approach for problems of this sort is to apply Bayes' Theorem, where for two events A and B

P( A given B)

ie

P(A|B) = P(A & B) / P(B)

So in our problem we have

P(H|H) = P(H & H)/P(H)

= (1/4) / [1 - P(T & T)]

= (1/4) / [1 - 1/4]

= (1/4) / (3/4)

= 1/3

Let's say there are two girls. A 10/10 and a landwhale. For some reasons you have a 50% chance to land with either of them.

You passed out drunk and you found out you fucked at least one of them, but don't know which one. What is the probability you also fucked the other one?

Now, would you say it doesn't matter whether you fucked the 10 and not the whale, or fucked the whale but not the 10? Is this just the same?

>>683093288

Glad you got my point mate.

People are misinterpreting the question. If you flip 2 coins, both will be tails, both will be heads, or one will be tails and other heads.

They can't both be tails because it says at least 1 landed heads. So either HH, HT, or TH.

The misconception is that HT and TH are the same. They are not. If you flip the coins, either one of them has a chance to be heads or tails. It is easiest to write out all three situations:

First case: throw coins, 1 lands heads and other tails.

Second case: throw coins, the one that landed heads before lands tails and the other one heads.

Third case: both land heads.

It's not about order its about outcome. You have a 2/3 chance that it will be HT or TH because each coin is independent of the other.

you have to open 2 doors.

behind the other door there can be either your 14 yo little sister with her petite virgin body OR your ripe 16 yo sister you've deflowered already.

so what are you chances of fucking two 14 year old relatives of yours?

>>

>>683093660

>TH and HT are the same.

They are not same. But you are making an equally simplistic error in assuming that they have the same probability of occurring. One has a 50% chance, and the other has a 100% chance since you cannot get a T if the first coin is a T. That means TH has a 50% chance of occurring while HT has a 100% chance of occurring. The end result is the same as if HT and TH are the same.

>>683094406

If the doors are open it's hardly a surprise.

I think it's 50% because one coin is no longer important. Before I flipped two coins, God showed up and God said one coin is def gonna be heads. So there's a 50/50 chance the other coin is also heads. Also a 50/50 chance that other coin is gonna be tails.

Your mum gets banged by a white guy and a black guy. They spit roast her, starting white in pussy, black in mouth.

Now white has a stamina 1:1.32 to black.

Pussy is sloppy so mouth induces orgasm faster. Rate 1:2.9

They switch positions every 2 minutes. Black guy cums after 5 turns.

How long does it take the white guy to cum, and is it in your mums puss or mouth?

Hint: its not 50%

Many of you say 50%, but this is actually incorrect. 50% is the probability of if the *first* coin is heads then the second is.

The correct answer is in fact ⅓.

TT - Invalid because 0 heads.

TH - Valid, but not 2 heads.

HT - Valid, but not 2 heads.

HH - Valid, and 2 heads.

Try it yourself. Flip two coins. Every time you get any heads, record whether it was one or two. You'll see that approximately ⅓ of the flips with at least one heads have two heads.

>>

>>683096378

it is fucking 50% m8 >>683096284

>>

>>683096378

Or you could try this:

You will need two coins, a pen, some paper, and something sturdy to write on.

Write this on the paper:

Both landed heads:

Not both landed heads:

Flip the two coins over and over again. Each time they both land on heads put a tick mark by the "both landed heads" part. whenever just one lands on heads put a tick mark by the "not both heads" part. Whenever anything else happens just don't write anything and keep moving nigger.

Or this:

Dat boi walks up to you and gives you two coins. After you say "o shit Whaddup" he says "flip dem coins dawg"
