    Great job! but very tiring also!!!

    ur video/experiment tallies with explantion given in class that the coin is biased towards head in many trials.

    Howerver, i would like to know Y u mark the tail?

    • Just to clarify, Nuzhah, I’m not the one who did the experiment. The coin is theoretically fair, it has no known bias. You can repeat the experiment with the tails instead of heads, and it would not matter. The tail was marked by the author of the video so as to show more clearly to the camera when a head was missed.
