I hopefully have a rather simple question.... I am looking for the equation to calculate the probability when the total counts of heads and tails get off balance. To further explain, when I flip the coin once there is 50/50 chance getting one or the other.... If I flip the coin 10,000 times that probability will get closer and closer to .5. However, on the way to 10,000 flips.... Maybe after 100 flips, I might have 30 heads and 70 tails... Therefore my next flip should have have more of a chance of hitting heads (greater than .5 anyway).... How do I calculate that "improved" probability after the measuring x amount of data?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
