Use the concept

Probability of occurrence of an event -

Let S be the sample space then the probability of occurrence of an event E is denoted by P(E) and it is defined as 

P\left ( E \right )=\frac{n\left ( E \right )}{n\left ( S \right )}

P\left ( E \right )\leq 1

P(E)=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\left(\frac{r}{n} \right )



- wherein

Where n repeated experiment and E occurs r times.


 P(P)=0.2\rightarrow winning

P(\bar{P})=0.8\rightarrow Loss

\therefore for\: winning \: Q

=0.2+0.8\times 0.8\times 0.2+-----\infty



\therefore winning\: chance\: for\: P=1-\frac{5}{9}
