this is what got me thinking....it might be a bit dumb, but.....uh...yea.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

haha.

ok, so given a fair coin, there is 1/2 chance to get heads or tail when tossed. since each toss in the air is independent, there is always 1/2 chance.

so if you set up some kind of system to flip the coin, everytime the coin is tossed, it is tossed the same way, i.e, same speed, spin, hight, same landing....basically, it is just tossed the exact same way, and there is no human error or anything.

so if I toss it 10x, will it get 5 heads and 5 tails? and will I toss 100x, will it get 50 and 50.

So what i'm asking is, whenever they say something has a 50% chance, when you do your experiement the absolutly same way every single time, will it always be exactly a 50/50 split?

maybe a dumb question, but just wondering....
