    I want to form a statistical hypothesis built around the likelihood that a
    tossed coin will land on heads approximately 50% of the time. Could anyone
    help me get started? I mainly need help deciding which test statistic to use
    (Z, T, F, or chi squared).

    Any help would be great.

  2. You are interested in the binomial distribution, which can be
    approximated by a Gaussian distribution. Do you know of
    "Bernoulli trials"?
