Theoretically, if you have a fair coin, the chances of landing on heads after 1000 tosses is 500, since there are only two outcomes, heads or tails, and each outcome is equally likely.

Experimentally, however, the number of times the penny would turn up heads is any number from 1 to 1000, including 1 and 1000 (although these are very unlikely outcomes). The most likely outcome is a number very close to 500.
