1.  If three fair coins are tossed randomly 175 times and it is found that three heads appeared 21 times, two heads appeared 56 times, one head appeared 63 times and zero head appeared 35 times. What is the probability of getting?

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:Total number of trials = 175.
Number of times three heads appeared = 21.
Number of times two heads appeared = 56.
Number of times one head appeared = 63.
Number of times zero head appeared = 35.
Number of times three heads appeared
= P(E1) =             total number of trials
= 21/175
= 0.12
Number of times two heads appeared
= P(E2) =             total number of trials
= 56/175
= 0.32
Number of times one head appeared
= P(E3) =             total number of trials
= 63/175
= 0.36
Number of times zero head appeared
= P(E4) =             total number of trials
= 35/175
= 0.20
Note: Remember when 3 coins are tossed randomly, the only possible outcomes
are E2, E3, E4 and
P(E1) + P(E2) + P(E3) + P(E4)
= (0.12 + 0.32 + 0.36 + 0.20)
= 1 ```

2.  Two dice are rolled, find the probability that the sum is?

equal to 1
equal to 4
less than 13
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  A Explanation: a) The sample space S of two dice is shown below.
S = { (1,1),(1,2),(1,3),(1,4),(1,5),(1,6)
(2,1),(2,2),(2,3),(2,4),(2,5),(2,6)
(3,1),(3,2),(3,3),(3,4),(3,5),(3,6)
(4,1),(4,2),(4,3),(4,4),(4,5),(4,6)
(5,1),(5,2),(5,3),(5,4),(5,5),(5,6)
(6,1),(6,2),(6,3),(6,4),(6,5),(6,6) }
Let E be the event "sum equal to 1". There are no outcomes which correspond to a sum equal to 1, hence
P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 0 / 36 = 0
b) Three possible outcomes give a sum equal to 4: E = {(1,3),(2,2),(3,1)}, hence.
P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 3 / 36 = 1 / 12
c) All possible outcomes, E = S, give a sum less than 13, hence.
P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 36 / 36 = 1

3.  Which of these numbers cannot be a probability?

a) -0.00001
0.5
1.001
1

```Answer

Answer: Option  D Explanation:A probability is always greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 1, hence only a) and c) above cannot represent probabilities: -0.00010 is less than 0 and 1.001 is greater than 1.
