## Poll ResultsPoll 561: I've tossed a coin before writing this poll question. Heads or tails?Total votes: 2784
It was tails. Specifically, I tossed a one-dollar coin, and it landed on the side showing the kangaroos, rather than the Queen's head.
I'm astonished at the asymmetry in the answers. I expected the ratios to be much closer to 50/50. In fact, a simple application of
the binomial theorem shows that the probability of 1824 (or more) people out of 2784 choosing heads is about 10 * At the 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% confidence level, for the statistically pedantic. |
