What are the answers to these two apparently easy probability problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 1. A fair coin is flipped at random until the first head is observed. Let Ax equal the event that exactly x flips are required for x = 1,2,3,4,.... Estimate the value of P(Ax). 2. A fair coin is flipped at random until heads is observed on two successive flips. Let By equal the event that exactly y flips are required y = 2,3,4,.... Estimate the value of P(By).
