Compute the estimated average number of coin tosses (or dice throws) to get a given sequence of Heads-and-Tails (or a sequence of intergers ranging from 1 to 6)

The inputs are:
- The Sequence (row vector)
- The Number of Monte-Carlo Simulations

The outputs are the estimated (Monte-Carlo) expectation of number of tosses/throws to get the input sequence, along with the standard deviation of the error (due to the randomness of the simulation)
