Histogram of Sample Proportions Simulator

This page generates a histogram of a sampling simulation. For example, suppose you want to test whether a coin is weighted towards heads. The theoretical proportion of heads for any number of coin flips is 50%. A simulation of 200 samplings of 50 flips each gives a histogram that can be used to compare the experimental results against to determine significance. If the experimental results are in the extreme 5% of the data in the histogram, then the experimental results are significant.
