```Hello,

I see two things can be changed a little bit.
1. redundant: while, if
2. print style at the last statement.

see below:

#Coin Toss Game
#Zameer Manji
import random

print "This game will simulate 100 coin tosses and then tell you the

tosses = 0
tails = 0

while tosses<100:
coin = random.randrange(2)
tosses +=1
if coin == 0:
else:
tails +=1
print "Tails"

print "Out of %s, %s were heads and %s were tails" % (tosses, heads, tails)

cheers,
pujo
