A coin can land as a tail or as a head. So there is a 50 50 chance of both, this means that, the probability of getting a head = 50% = 1/2 and also the probability of getting a tail 50% = 1/2 The universe is designed like that, with uncertainty.. In 50 tosses of the coin, the prob. of a head is 48% [which should not be the case] So in more tosses of the coin it'll tend to become 50% because that is the chance of getting ahead over a head. So in 1000 tosses of the coin the probability should approach 50%. Understood? :)
