Law of Large Numbers
A mathematical theory that states that the statistical likelihood of a sample having a certain value approaches the statistical likelihood of the whole universe of samples as the sample becomes larger. For example, this is the reason political polls tend to be more accurate the larger they are. This is also called Bernoulli's Law.
