Can i cheat at sport using this math tactic?
My friend is an umpire and has to toss a coin at the start of the game and i call heads or tails and if i win i get to choose which way to play and gain an advantage. If i lose the other teams captain chooses and gets an advantage.
I talk to him the night before and he says to me to call heads. (hes helping me cheat)
That night at home he sits there tossing the coin thousands of times until it lands tails 4 times in a row. He then keeps the coin totally still and makes sure it doesn't move until he brings it out for the coin toss at the game the next day.
He asks me what i choose and i say heads. Since the odds of getting 5 tails in a row is incredibly low im certain to get heads and thus win the coin toss and choose the best way to play.
This will work wont it /sci?
I just want to make sure before my friend has to toss the coin thousands of times.
