#### Question

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

#### Solution

No. of possible outcomes while tossing a coin = 2 {1 head & 1 tail}

Probability =`"No.of favorable outcomes"/"Total no.of possible outcomes"`

P(getting head) =1/2

P(getting tail) =1/2

Since probability of two events are equal, these are called equally like events.

Hence, tossing a coin is considered to be a fair way of deciding which team should choose ends in a game of cricket.
