# Caution! Is flipping a coin really 50-50?

## New study shows how guessing heads or tails isn't really a 50-50 game.

You shouldn’t be a mathematician or a Vegas card shark to realize that, when everything is equal, the likelihood of flipping a coin and speculating which side grounds up is 50-50.   In any case, what many people appear to overlook is that things are never equal. As a general rule, the chances of speculating heads or tails aren’t as even as you may think. The reason has more to do with material science than the likelihood.   A characteristic predisposition happens when you are flipping coins. This results in the side that was looking up coming back to that same position 51 for every penny of the time. So, if you flip with its heads side looking up, it will arrive a similar route 51 out of 100 times.   Regardless of how hard you flip, the side that began up will invest more energy looking up more often than not.   One state of mind about this is to take a gander at the proportion of even and odd numbers beginning from one. What you’ll find is that regardless of what number you stop at, there will never be more even numbers than odd numbers in that succession.   All right, let’s break down the math for you.
