Fair play (Posted on 2011-12-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two gamblers, A and B, divided into a few bundles the money they've recently won and agreed to toss a coin for each bundle.
A 3rd gambler, nicknamed Mathwiz remarked: "It is an even money that A will win at least five of the tosses".
How many bundles of money were there?
