By my calculation, Thanos is going to have to snap every 40 years to keep the Earths population stable.

Imagine you were flipping a coin 10 times, and it was rigged so that you were guaranteed 5 would be heads. If the first 4 were tails, it is no longer a 50% chance of being heads for the remaining 6. Their individual chances becomes 1/6 or 16.7%. It has to meet the 50% outcome overall.

Uhhh... you flip a coin 10 times.  The 1st 9 times is heads.  The 10th time is still 50/50.

My hypothetical said it was rigged so five were guaranteed to be head. Just an attempt to explain the 50% of the population being wiped. I know in a normal situation a coin toss is always 50/50. Was clearly a poor example if it didn’t register though, so carry on.
