I got 2^6=64 times

now part B.) How many ways can it be flipped so that heads appears once?Help please

I asked this yesterday tutor said 64/64-63/64=1/64, then a classmate said it was wrong and that it was

64-C(6,1)=64-6=58 which one is it?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the total ways possible are 2^6=64.

for a head to appear once, then

64-(8C1) {C stands for combination}

64-(8)

64-8= 56

oh, sorry not 8 but 6

corrections

64-(6C1)

64-(6)

64-6=58

correct answer is 58.

Thankyou, p.s. why is the tutor wrong i'm just curious?

Welcome. The tutor calculated the probability of getting one head.
