Wikipedia: Law of large numbers

The fundamental statistical result that the average of a sequence of *n* independent identically distributed random variables tends to their common mean as *n* tends to infinity, whence the relative frequency of the occurrence of an event in *n* independent repetitions of an experiment tends to its probability as *n* increases without limit.
