Default Question on Lecture 2


In reviewing some of the lectures, I have a question about Lecture 2 (slide 14; ~ 47 minute mark), "Coin analogy", how was 63% arrived at as the answer to the second question:

If you toss 1000 fair coins 10 times each, what is the probability that some coin will get 10 heads?
