Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0While 410 heads is the most likely outcome, it is not guaranteed. In fact, purely by chance, the outcome may vary from 410. There is even a very small chance (about 1 in 10^247) that he will get 0 heads. Furthermore, even though 410 is the most likely outcome, it will only occur about 3% of the time. Probability gives an average expectation. It does not guarantee the outcome of any trial.
