Default Re: question about probability

In the second lecture, the Professor asked a question about flipping a coin:
What is the probability of getting all ten heads if you flip a coin 10 times count the number of heads, and then you repeat the experiment 1000 times.

The answer he gave was 63% -- I would like to know how this was computed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
