Default Re: Q1 and Q2


I understand that the mu's are the expected values the relative frequency of heads in N=10 flips. Clearly, mu_1=mu_crand=0.5. Mu_min is different from this value, but it can be calculated analytically. I found that all three sample frequencies (nu's) converge to their respective mu values for all three coins, regardless of whether one coin is fixed and the other 2 sample frequencies are obtained by looking at the 1000*10 flips. This is to be expected, as the law of large numbers states that all sample frequencies converge to the true population frequencies. However, there is no option in question 2 for "all three coins satisfy hoeffding's inequality". Where is my error?
