Re: question about probability
The law of big numbers states that the average $\nu_min$ is close to the $E{\nu_min}$.
$E\nu_min$ can be calculated directly for this experiment. $P(\nu_min=0)$=0.623576 $P(\nu_min = 0.1)$ = 0.3764034 $P(\nu_min = 0.2)$ = 0.00002; and $P(\nu_min>=0.3)=0$ for the purposes of calculating the mean. Therefore, $E(\nu_min)$=0.037644, and the average proportion of heads for c_min should be close to this number.

Re: question about probability
how did you calculate those probability values? ( nu_min = 0, 0.1, 0.2 )

Re: question about probability
thank you for the detailed explanation.

Re: question about probability
the answer is very clear but how do we know when to use this not.
to clarify my question, if say P(ten heads)=p and P(not ten heads)=q (=1p). why does using (p^1000) give the wrong answer?
