Gambler's Fallacy
Prerequisites
prerequisites
This simulation shows that the
difference between the number of heads and the number of tails does
not converge on 0. There is no "compensatory force" that
makes up for too many heads (or tails) by causing more of tails
to occur. The reason that the proportion of heads approaches 0 is
that the difference between the number of heads and tails becomes
very small compared to the total number of coin flips.
