    I recently had a chance to talk with my mother on this topic and she provided a different answer. To remind everyone, I answered that I would be suspicious after 18 heads, because 19/20 is represented in percentages as 95% which rounds up to 100% depending on your degree of precision.

    My mother, interestingly, answered that she would become suspicious after 9 heads. This also rounds up to 100%, just with one less degree of precision than what I use.

    Ideally, of course, I would want around 198 iterations to be done, which would be considered a decent sample size for this question. If we get heads 198 times, then we have a probability of 99.5%

    This shows the importance of large sample sizes for gaining accurate readings. To get readings to the tenth of a percent, we would need a sample size of about 1,998 or about 2,000. This is a number that I keep in mind when reading many statistical papers and it might be one you would like to keep in mind, too.

    From my early Jewish education I viewed heaven(the place where God is) , שָּׁמַ֖יִם, as singular, although it has a plural ending.
    The same verse has another example of this in the same verse, i.e. בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים (God created), the word for created is in the third person singular.
