Two headed coin drawn from a bin of fair coins.

bin holds 999 fair coins and one two-headed coin. A coin was drawn at random from the bin. The drawn coin was tossed ten times. We do not return it to the bin. Every time the result of the tossing is head. What is the probability that the drawn coin is the two-headed coin?

We introduce the random events MATH These events have the properties MATH MATH MATH We denote as $y$ the observed sample of ten tosses. We are interested in calculation of Prob MATH . By the formula ( Inversion_remark ) we have MATH Clearly, MATH The Prob $\left( y\right) $ may be determined from the ( Total probability rule ) MATH MATH Therefore, MATH
