Problem 745

Consider an infinite series of events of rolling a fair six-sided die. Assume that each event is independent of each other. For each of the below, determine its probability.

(1) At least one die lands on the face 5 in the first $n$ rolls.
(2) Exactly $k$ dice land on the face 5 in the first $n \geq k$ rolls.
(3) Every die roll results in the face 5.

Problem 734

Let $E$ and $F$ be independent events. Let $F^c$ be the complement of $F$.

Prove that $E$ and $F^c$ are independent as well.

Problem 730

Four fair coins are tossed.

(1) What is the probability that all coins land heads?

(2) What is the probability that all coins land heads if the first coin is heads?

(3) What is the probability that all coins land heads if at least one coin lands heads?
