# A coin is tossed 12 times and the outcomes are observed as shown below: The chance of occurrence of Head is

(a) 1/2

(b) 5/12

(c) 7/12

(d) 5/7

**Solution:**

As a coin is tossed twelve times, we got 12 outcomes

The number of times the head appeared is 5

Therefore, the __probability__ is the ratio of favourable outcomes to total comes = 5/12

**✦ Try This:** A coin is tossed 12 times and the outcomes are observed as shown below: The chance of occurrence of Tail is (a) 1/2, (b) 5/12, (c) 7/12, (d) 5/7

As a coin is tossed twelve times, we got 12 outcomes

The number of times the tail appeared is 7

Therefore, the probability is the ratio of favourable outcomes to total comes = 7/12
