Today, my container overflowed, so I can stop my experiment. Here's the tally:
244 pennies (1c)My question: given random numbers and all that rot, is this an expected distribution?
059 nickels (5c)
135 dimes (10c)
140 quarters (25c)
I fully expect hordes of math majors (eager to complete their doctoral thesis) will apply themselves to this problem, post haste.
And now, we wait.
Extra credit: This container of change equals $53.89 .. what is the probability that future containers will be within ten (10) percent of today's total?
