    Hi

    I would appreciate if you could help me with this question.

    Q. A coin that comes up heads with probability 3/4 on each flip can be used to generate more unbiased bits per flip ( on average ) than a coin that comes up heads with probability 7/8.

    Is it TRUE or FALSE and How ?

    Thanks
