1989 AIME Problems/Problem 5

Revision as of 22:58, 24 February 2007 by Minsoens (talk | contribs)


When a certain biased coin is flipped five times, the probability of getting heads exactly once is not equal to $0^{}_{}$ and is the same as that of getting heads exactly twice. Let $\frac ij^{}_{}$, in lowest terms, be the probability that the coin comes up heads in exactly $3_{}^{}$ out of $5^{}_{}$ flips. Find $i+j^{}_{}$.
