The correct answer to this question is B. No matter how many times you try; the probability remains the same. The Law of Large Numbers is also known as LLN. An aspect of math, the law of large numbers, is a theorem that statistic studiers use. Mathematician Jakob Bernoulli was first credited as describing this law.

Though he said the law was extremely simple, it took him over 20 years to prove it. His proof was published in 1713, in Ars Conjectandi or The Art of Conjecturing. The law started out as being called the Golden Theorem. It then was called the Bernoulli's Theorem, before S.D. Poisson called it the law of large numbers.
