# If you toss a coin 6 times and it comes down heads on each occasion. Can you say that the probability of getting a head is 1? Give reasons

**Solution:**

We know that

Probability can be defined as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes of an event.

Probability = Favourable outcomes/ Total outcomes

If a coin is tossed getting head or tail are both equally likely events

The probability here is 1/2

If the coin is tossed 6 times, the probability will remain the same

The probability of getting a head is not 1.

Therefore, the statement is not true.

**✦ Try This: **I toss three coins together. What is the probability of 3 heads?
