(i)    ∵ Total number of possible outcomes = 80

 and, the number of favourable outcomes of getting a tail = 80 - 38 = 42

∴ Probability of getting a tail = Number of favourable outcomes/Total number of outcomes

= 42/80 = 21/40

 (ii) ∵ Total number of possible outcomes = 80

 and, the number of favourable outcomes of getting head = 38

∴ Probability of getting a head = Number of favourable outcomes/Total number of outcomes

= 38/80 = 19/40
