If two coins are tossed in the air, What is the probability that both coins will land on "heads"?
The ratio between the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes is called probability. It lies between 0 and 1.
Answer: The probability that both coins land on 'heads' is 1/ 4.
Let's find the probability.
Let H be the head and T be the tail.
When two coins are tossed, the sample space outcomes will be
(H, H), (H, T), (T, H), (T, T).
We have only one outcome where both the coins have 'heads'.
⇒ P(E) = Number of favorable outcomes / Total number of outcomes.
⇒ P (getting both heads) = 1 / 4
