You'd have to know the result of the flips to know the chance of being right. If the choice was made before the coin flips the probability would be 1/2. At last someone who can think and understand a question. Thank you.

The Law of Large Numbers exists for a reason. Again you are not thinking about the problem and only resorting to present information. I ask you to forget present information for a while and even if you just pretend I am right consider the actual problem. NNNNNN We will use dice results, Pick one, what is your chance of number 4? I am not asking the chance of rolling a dice and rolling a 4. What is your chance of picking from the results.

If head comes all 5 times, then your chances of picking heads is 100% , if it came all tails, your chances are 0%. If it came H T T T T, your chances are 20% and so on... Except this is not the question that you originally asked. The fact that Nishi managed to decipher your incoherent question earns him a Bambi, doesn`t make your question less stupid. What you are saying is so simple and so obvious that nobody thought that this is what you have problems with. It must be clear to a third grader that if you flip 5 heads then there is a 100% chance that you will pick heads from that set of coins, and if you flip 3 heads and 2 tails that there is 60% chance that you will pick heads. But what the fuck is the point ? That has nothing to do with odds or probability. That piece of information is unusable. Situation here is that people gave more credit to your "math problem" then it deserves. It belongs in "Math for slightly mentally impaired" section and you are kidding yourself that you discovered something of significance in the world of math. . . . ................................ ......................................... .

You said to turn over one and name the chances on that one.

This is the basic of the problem, I do not know if you would understand probability wave function, golden constants, probability time dilation, and all sorts of quantum weirdness. And this very simple thing that you just agreed with , the internet has denied even closing my posts and banning me.

You can't calculate the probabilities of an individual draw when the variables (e.g. the results) are unknown.
