Q. 294.2( 5 Votes )

Why is tossing a coin considered to be a fair way of deciding which team should choose ends in a game of cricket?

Answer :

Number of possible outcomes, n(S) = 2


Probability of getting a head, P(E’) = � = probability of getting a tail


Since both probabilities are equal for both of the events, therefore both of the players have equal chances to win the game and thus this is a fair way to make this decision that who will play first.
