I don't understand what we need to find in this problem...

I mean I don't understand the concept of 'expected'.

Does the answer demand that I count all the possibilities for consecutive heads like in case of occurrence of only one H, there is no possibility of getting a consecutive heads-pair.. And in case of two heads, there's a possibility of 24 because HH can occur at 24 distinct places in the toss .

Am I getting the problem right?

I still do not understand how to use that concept in here...
