Simone has been flipping a coin and has just flipped 5 heads in a row. she says that because she has just gotten so many heads, she is more likely to get tails than heads the next time she flips. Is Simone correct? What is the probability that her next flip will be a tail? Does the answer depend on what the previous flips were?
No.The probability is always half.Its just luck that she got 5 in a row.After 5 times the probability will be same.Chance of tail will not be increased.
