    3.1 How to stress out Coach
    A college hires a new football coach on the terms that if the team loses two games in a row than he's fired. Assume that the probability of a team winning any of their games is 0.5. How many games do you expect that the Coach will keep his job? You will find question 2.5-14 on page 111 helpful. If the teams probability of winning a game is 0.8 (for every game they play), then how many games would you expect the coach to hold onto his job?
