Answer:0.5 is the correct answer.

Step-by-step explanation:Question:

You flip a fair coin. What is P(tails)?

If necessary, round your answer to 2 decimal places.

Answer:

P(tail) = 0.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

A fair die

Required

P(Tails)

A fair die has 2 sides, the head and the tail; each of the sides have equal probability.

The number of head in a die is 1 and the number of a tail in a die is 2.

Let P(tail) represent the probability of obtaining a tail.

P(tail) is calculated by number of tail divided by number of sides of a die.

Hence, P(tail) = ½

P(tail) = 0.50
