Python Math: Exercise-53 with Solution

Write a Python program to flip a coin 1000 times and count heads and tails.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import random
import itertools

results = {
    'heads': 0,
    'tails': 0,
}
sides = list(results.keys())

for i in range(10000):
    results[random.choice(sides)] += 1

print('Heads:', results['heads'])
print('Tails:', results['tails'])

Sample Output:

Heads: 5037                                                                                                   
Tails: 4963
