- Summary:
- How low is the probability of getting 10 consecutive tails with 30 coin flips?

Hi, i was doing a programming exercise that asked me to simulate te flip of coins until it finds 10 consecutive tails.

The program usually needs to flips like 6000/8000 coins before finding 10 tails consecutively, but suddenly i found 10 tails with only 30 coin flips, i think that what happened to me has a really low probaility.

I would like to know how low that probability is, can anyone help?

Usual output:

Lucky output
