Six people will decide which of them are on a committee by flipping a coin. Each person flips the coin, and is on the committee if he or she gets a head. What is the probability that someone is on the committee, but not all six people?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 15, 2022, 4:57 pm ad1c9bdddf
The probability that any one individual (i.e. someone) ends up on the committee is 0.5. In other words, either an individual will get a heads or a tails. That's 0.5 probability of getting a heads. In addition, what happens to one individual is completely independent of what happens to another individual.
