On tossing a coin once,
Number of possible outcome = 2

(i) Favourable outcomes getting a tail = 1

⇒ Number of favourable outcomes = 2

∴ P(E) = Number of favourable outcomes/Number of all possible outcome

= 1/2

(ii) a head

Similarly, Favourable outcome getting a head = 1

But number of possible outcome = 2

∴ P(E) = Number of favourable outcome/Number of all possible outcome

= 1/2
