Probability question
Posted:
Apr 16, 2014 3:20 PM


What is the probability of having the following event occur on the very next try:
Event 1: Three coins are thrown at once, six consecutive times.
1st toss  HHT 2nd toss TTH 3rd toss  HHT 4th toss  TTT 5th toss TTH 6th toss TTH
Event 2: You follow the same procedure and get the EXACT same result.
What are the odds/probability for Event 1 to repeat itself on the very next try?
Any reply would be greatly appreciated.......
