A coin is tossed 14 times .heads occur 18 times and tail 6 times . the second and thirteenth tosses are heads then find maximum no of heads that can occur in a row?

Assuming 14, 8 and 6.

Since we must use the two given flips of heads, that leaves only six flips to position somewhere (anywhere) in the sequence. We want a position that creates the maximum number in a row.

Placing six heads in positions 3-8 or in positions 7-12 create a string of 7 heads in a row. We canâ€™t do any better than that.
