# Pin Probability

To work out the probability of a drawing pin landing point up
students conduct an experiment in which a drawing pin is dropped many
times. If the pin lands point up on *x* occasions out of a total number
of *N* trials, the
relative frequency of landing point up is*
x/N.* When an experiment is repeated many times we can use the
relative frequency as an estimate of the probability of the event occurring.
That's Pin Probability at Patana!
