If we flip a coin 10 times, how often do we get 6 or more heads? A first step to answering this question would be to simulate 10 flips. Use the random number table in Appendix A to simulate flipping a coin 10 times. Let odd digits (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) represent heads, and let even digits (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) represent tails. Begin with the first digit in the third row.
a. Write the sequence of 10 random digits.
b. Write the sequence of 10 “heads” and “tails.” Write H for heads and T for tails.
c. How many heads did you get? Did you get 6 or more heads?
