Description: Two boxes have the same number of matches. A coin is tossed to determine which box a match is taken from. Coin toss repeats until the chosen box is empty; the number of matches remaining in the other box is recorded. This simulation allows one coin toss at a time ("click to spin"), one complete round ("demo"), or a fixed number of complete trials ("simulate"). Using "simulate" shows the theoretical and empirical outcomes.
