==================================

I'm confused on how to start. I don't know how many times im suppose to toss coin, and how to set up my table for the expected value and then find variance, I know how to find expected value when I know how to use what's given to me, hope you can help. I feel that the answer is probably simple but i'm stuck on info i think it lacks.

this is a binomial distribution

mean = n p = n/2

variance = n p (1-p) = n/4

It is indeed lacking n so has to be answered that way
