You throw n = 10 equitable counterfeits, each professioning heads behind a while appearance p1 = 0.5, unconnectedly of the other throwes. Each counterfeit that professions tails is then throwed again, once. Behind forthcoming this regularity, what is the appearance that accurately k = 6 counterfeits profession heads?

Hint: leading apportion p2,the appearance that a individual counterfeit professions heads (behind forthcoming the 2-step regularity), and then perform use of the binomial PMF.
