Most people assume that random numbers are actually more orderly than they really are. For example, they assume that if you draw 50 random numbers, Nature will somehow almost ensure that you have 25 even numbers and 25 odd ones, or very close to that. Draw 50 random numbers from Table E.9 in Appendix E and calculate the proportion of even numbers. Then do this two more times and record the proportion of even numbers that you obtained each time. Do these data look the way you would expect them to look?
