Default Re: Homework1 Q4 and Q5 - Please show workings

The problems ask for the probability, not a bound (Hoeffding or otherwise) on the probability. Try using independence to calculate the probability exactly. If you get Problem 4 right, it is fairly straightforward to get Problem 5, too using simple rules of combining probabilities of events.
