# Sushma tosses a coin 3 times and gets tail each time. Do you think that the outcome of next toss will be a tail? 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

So the probability of getting head or tail is 1/2

If Sushma tosses a coin 3 times, the probability will remain the same.

The probability that the outcome of next toss may be a head or tail

Therefore, the statement is not true.

**✦ Try This: **I toss three coins together. What is the probability of 1 head?
