Q1 on average, will someone flip the same 100 long sequence I did? Q2 how long a sequence will they match up to,........ on average?
Q1 is obviously no, George worked it out. for the Americans.. in Q2 average means expected, the average for many trials of the experiment. not the average length that is correct, that would be in the order of 1/2 + 1/4 + .. = 1. since 500,000 would match to 0, 250,000 would match to 1 flip, 125,000 would match to 2 flips..
On average, not the average.
