I posted this question a couple time and may not have explained right.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is a lot of mathematically talented people on this site unfortunately i am

not one of them...I would appreciate if someone could please answer this for me.

Imagine there was a coin that was heavier on the heads side on landed on

heads 80% of the time and 20% of the time

If I flipped that coin 5,000 times how many time would i get

20 heads in a row ?

10 heads in a row ?

5 heads in a row ?

Can anyone show me how to calculate this?

Thanks
