Flipping 5 Coins
- Steve Phelps
Simulate the tossing of 5 coins. Let the Random Variable X be the number of heads. Repeat this 10 times, keeping track of the number of heads that show up on each toss of the 5 coins. Click on the FLIP! button to flip the five coins.
Would you expect the number of heads to be pretty similar for all students in your class? Why or why not? What number of heads do you think is most common? What number of heads do you think is least common?
