Answer to Question #6169 in Statistics and Probability for shippi s
The total number of possible outcomes is N = 2^98 = 316912650057057350374175801344.
The probability of having 63 heads in 98 tossings is p = n/N = 460149430026457132088731968/316912650057057350374175801344 ≈ 0.0014519755836304144138101871749498.
So, the probability the 64th head on the 99th toss is P = p*(1/2) ≈ 0.0007259877918152072069050935874749.

It can be used as well, but we applied classical definition of probabilities.
Why didn't you use this formula Pr(X i) Pr(X i) nCi p q
