Hi there friends... I used this line of code "typicalList = Table[Random[Integer], {50}]" and got this result... {1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, \ 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1} By generating a few more of these random lists, I'm to predict a similiar situation: such as how long i would expect to wait for 3 heads in a coin tossing competition... any suggestion or help as to what code i could use to do this? thanks a lot guys
