Testing hypothesis and significance level

  1. May 8, 2005 #1
    Let N be the number of flips of a coin up to an including the first flip of heads. Develope a significance test for N at the alpha=0.1 to test the hypothesis H that the coin is fair.

    Can someone please help me with this statistics problem? I have no clue how to start it. Thank you :smile:
