A probability question concerning eggs 2016-10-16
From Brian:
Two participants are alternatively selecting eggs from a basket of 6 hard-boiled eggs and 6 uncooked eggs. Alternatively they are smashing the eggs on their foreheads. One participant gets 4 hard boiled eggs in a row and the other person gets 4 uncooked eggs in a row. What is the probability of this occurring (I watched this happen).

Thank you

Brian

The cousin of Sally's sister's boyfriend 2003-01-23
From Michael:
Sally went to a farm to buy eggs. Returning home, she gave half of them to her sister who, in turn, gave a third of those she had gotten to her boyfriend. The latter, after eating one third of the eggs that he had gotten, gave the rest to his cousin. Given that each egg weighs 70 grams, that Sally cannot carry more than 2.5kg, and that the eggs were raw, calculate how many eggs the cousin of Sally's sister's boyfriend received.
