The law of numbers is based on the actual outcome of any given event when randomness is eliminated. The law of numbers simply put, states that the result will always be the result. It is different than the outdated concepts of averages or probability because it is not a guess. A good example is flipping a coin. Probability is 50/50 that the coin will land on heads or tails. If the coin is flipped 10 times, users of averages or probability will say that the coin will land on heads 5 times and tails 5 times. After flipping the coin 10 times it landed on heads 6 times and tails 4 times. The law of numbers states the coin will land on heads 6 times and on tails 4 times.

The law of numbers goes into physics and Psychology and is based on the idea that nothing is random. The results of flipping a coin are based on the way the coin was held, the amount of force applied to the coin, the height the coin was above the ground, and the environmental factors surrounding the coin as it turns through the air. If all factors are identical, the result will be identical. The coin will land on heads 10 out of 10 times. These factors are not easily controlled and were dismissed as random or probability. The law of numbers corrects for these factors.
