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!
