Question 31 Two coins are tossed simultaneously. What is the probability of getting (i) At least one head? (ii) At most one tail? (iii) A head and a tail?When 2 coins are tossed Possible outcomes = HH, TH, HT, TT Let’s solve each part individually (i) At least one head? Now, Outcomes with atleast with 1 head = HH, HT, TH Thus, P(getting atleast 1 head) = (π‘π‘’π‘šπ‘π‘’π‘Ÿ π‘œπ‘“ π‘œπ‘’π‘‘π‘π‘œπ‘šπ‘’π‘  π‘€π‘–π‘‘β„Ž π‘Žπ‘‘π‘™π‘’π‘Žπ‘ π‘‘ 1 β„Žπ‘’π‘Žπ‘‘)/(π‘‡π‘œπ‘‘π‘Žπ‘™ π‘›π‘’π‘šπ‘π‘’π‘Ÿ π‘œπ‘“ π‘œπ‘’π‘‘π‘π‘œπ‘šπ‘’π‘ ) = πŸ‘/πŸ’(ii) At most one tail?
