Consider the example of flipping of a coin. There are only two inputs. The output may be different each time you flip the coin. The head and tail will not appear simultaneously but randomly. Is there a function set which can determine the outcome of the flipping process?

Look up the discrete uniform probability distribution where a=0 b=1 and n=2 for each independent trial of a fair coin.

EDIT: For the probability of any given ratio of heads and tails after n trials, look up the binomial distribution.
