# Two coins are tossed 1000 times and the outcomes are recorded as below :

Number of heads 2 1 0

Frequency 220 550 250

Based on this information, the probability for at most one head is

a. 1/5

b. 1/4

c. 4/5

d. 3/4

**Solution:**

It is given that

Total number of coins tossed n(S) = 1000

We know that

Number of outcomes in which atmost one head n(E) = 550 + 250 = 800

So the probability for at most one head = n(E)/n(S)

Substituting the values

= 800/1000

= 4/5

Therefore, the probability for at most one head is ⅘.
