Abstract

IN Nature of November 25, Prof. E. T. Whittaker says "If a coin is tossed a thousand times and the number of occurrences of heads recorded, and if this experiment is repeated a very great number of times, there will be a statistical regularity in the records, which may be calculated by the ordinary theory of probability. Does the calculation... involve only the assumption (as regards the tossing) that there is symmetry in the system".
