He has flipped a coin 10 times and has obtained a tail on each trial. He says that his luck is sure to change and that he will surely obtain a head on the next trial. a. How would you respon to Kenji? WELL THE PROBABILITY AT ANY TIME IN A SINGLE ATTEMPT IS 1/2=0.5= 50% b. Have you ever heatd individuals in gaming situations make claims similar to Kenji's? Are they justified? Explain. YES OFCOURSE ALWAYS OR MORE NUMBER OF TIMES THAN OTHERWISE PROBABLY.
