Jack is taking a four-item true-false test. He has no knowledge about the subject of the test and decided to flip a coin to answer the items. What is the probability that he receives a perfect score? What is the probability on a 10-item test?
Answer: 1/16 or 6.25% that he receives a perfect score .
1/1,024 0r .000976562% not likely of a perfect score on the 10-item test.
Is this correct?
Thanks.
