notes

A coin is tossed several times and the number of times we get head or tail is noted. Let us look at the result sheet where we keep on increasing the tosses:

Observe that as you increase the number of tosses more and more, the number of heads and the number of tails come closer and closer to each other. 
This could also be done with a die, when tossed a large number of times. Number of each of the six outcomes become almost equal  to each other. In such cases, we may say that the different outcomes of the experiment are equally likely. This means that each of the outcomes has the same chance of occurring.
