Description

Toss a thumb tack onto the table. Does it land point-up or point-down? 

What happens if you do this lots of times... what do you expect is the ratio of point-up vs. point-down lands?

You can do this with five or ten tacks at once. 

Enter two rows of data: result and count for each of the two possibilities.
