Using Table $15.4,$ verify the contention that if you toss 100 coins each second, you can expect to get 100 heads or 100 tails once in $2 \times 10^{22}$ years; calculate the time to two- digit accuracy.

$t=2 \cdot 10^{22}$ years

so from 15.4 sable number 15.4. We know that, um, they are 1.27 times 10 power, 30 possibilities. So each possibility takes one second. Then you will need these many seconds. And the question says 100 heads or 100 taels, so that, uh, two possibilities that we are going to accept. So, according to the question it will take, uh, it will take 1.27 times 10 hour, 30 seconds. How about this? Sometimes temper with 30. So from 15.4 sable number 15.4. We know that for these two possibilities to happen or if you want just one off them possibilities, then you just have to divide this by two to get 6.5 times 10 power, 29 seconds. So it will happen twice in every 1.27 times to empower 30 seconds or once in every 6.35 times 10 power, 29 seconds
