    Hello,

    I have a problem which I hope someone can help with. Suppose I am trying todistinguish between three sheets of paper by dropping a steel ball onto them. The probability that the ball with penetrate is 25%, 50% and 75% respectively. I pick one and drop 6 balls, half of which penetrate. How confidentam I that this is the 50% sheet?

    Thanks in advance for any help...
