bayesian statistics question, Data Structure & Algorithms

Suppose that there is a Beta(2,2) prior distribution on the probability theta that a coin will
yield a "head" when spun in a specified manner. The coin is independently spun 10 times,
and "heads" appears 3 times.
(a) Calculate the posterior mean
(b) Calculate the posterior variance
(c) Calculate the posterior probability that .45 < theta < .55
