Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Recently, I read abt some experiments related to probability which involved tossing of coins.It listed the experiments performed by following-

Comte buffon:- 2048 heads from 4040 tosses.

J E Kerrich:-5067 heads from 10000 tosses.

Karl Pearson:-12012 heads from 24000 tosses.

My question- Theoretical probability states the result should be approximately 0.500. Okay, agreed! But why only number of heads is greater than number of tails and not vice versa?

Thanks in advance
