Hi all

A coin is tossed 150 times

We know that there are only two possible outcomes, heads or tails, however, we don't know what the probability of each result occurring is.

Results:

80 times, it lands on heads

70 times, it lands on tails

What is the probability that heads has a greater than 50% chance of occurring on the next toss?

Any help is appreciated

It is a classical p-value test

But I would argue that this test cannot judge probability.

I suggest you read Bayesian statistics. I guess this problem is a false one.

**X'(y-Xβ)=0**
