basis to assume that's before class. There's a one chance probability. Um hey, feeling falling down on you on theirs to fall possibilities, it falls or it doesn't fall. And since we're saying these are both equally likely there's a 1/2 tramps that it falls on, the one have chance that it does it on. What's wrong with this reasoning is because, um, there is a hard chance that it doesn't fold, since in this case, we aren't we don't have a fair chance of both of these occurring. Instead, it is loaded has to say there is a high chance that it doesnt fall. Then when it boastful. So the chance of it bowling should be a lot lowered going how it should be approximately represents where when it goes, are you give me the other one. You're efficient checks that it doesnt fall. Onda Yeah, I It should be a service into a chance that it doesnt fall, but it does fall and and 100% chance that it does doesn't vote. In this case, it's loaded and it is not fair
