Default Re: Exercise 1.10

While comparing the Coin-Flip experiment with the Bin-Model
a) Sample size of the individual Bin is equal to the number of coin flips (N=10)
b) Number of hypothesis is equal to number of coins (M=1000)

but, the aspect of repeating the entire coin-flip experiment large number of times (100,000) does not have any counterpart with the (Single or Multiple) Bin-Model.

Is the purpose of repeating the coin-flip experiment only to find the estimates of P[|v-mu|>epsilon] without using the hoeffding inequality and then comparing it with the bound given by hoeffding ? Kindly clarify this point.
