A gambler is holding 3 coins. One is an ordinary quarter, 
the second has 2 tails, the third has 2 heads. The gambler 
chooses one of the coins at random and flips it, showing 
heads.  What is the likelihood that the other side is tails?

              THE SOLUTION
 

         One in three, since there are 3 heads,
         and only one of the 3 has tails opposite.
