Question

# In tossing a fair coin twice, find the probability of getting exactly one tail

Solution

## When a fair coin is tossed twice, $$S = \left \{HH, TT, HT, TH\right \} \therefore n(S) = 4$$Let $$D$$ be the event of getting exactly one tail$$D = \left \{HT, TH\right \}\therefore n(D) = 2$$$$\therefore P(D) = \dfrac {n(D)}{n(S)} = \dfrac {2}{4}$$Maths
