Web Pioneer and HTML/CSS expert, that mainly works with PHP. Decent knowledge of SQL, JavaScript, flash and all that usual stuff...

Considers himself to be a beginner forever, even though has experience in the field, the fact that he is self-taught shows with constant beginner questions.

Talks about himself in third person.

I don't understand where you got the 900 from, it can't be the same 900 as the one in n=900p because it has a p next to it and the sample size is 450, (it took me almost a year to understand your answer, mainly because I had to learn the definitions first). P.S. how do you do the math like that?

if I use the full formula in your example (not ignoring the (1 - p) part), then n = 900(0.5)(1 - 0.5) right? so we would sample 225 coin tosses and expect around 112.5 heads with 7.5 standard deviation, right?
