# Why is tossing a coin considered to be a fair way of deciding which team should get the ball at the beginning of a football game?

Concept Used:

When two events occur with equal probability, they are called equally likely events. Chances of occurring of these events are equal.

Explanation:

Tossing a coin considered to be a fair way of deciding which team should get the ball at the beginning of a football game because when we toss a coin, the possible outcomes are only two, head or tail, which are equally likely outcomes. Hence, the result of an individual toss is completely unpredictable and fair.
