  #### In a game, the entry fee is Rs 5. The game consists of a tossing a coin 3 times. If one or two heads show, Shweta gets her entry fee back. If she throws 3 heads, she receives double the entry fees. Otherwise she will lose. For tossing a coin three times, find the probability that she(i) loses the entry fee. (ii) gets double entry fee. (iii) just gets her entry fee. Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total cases = 8(HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, TTT, TTH, THT, HTT)
case in which the lose entry = 8 – (in which she gets entry book + in which she gets double)
= 8 – 6 (HHT, HTH, THH, TTH, THT, HTT) – 1(HHH)
= 8 – 7 = 1
Favourable cases = 1
Probability =
Probability that she will lose money =

Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total cases = 8(HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, TTT, TTH, THT, HTT)
case in which she gets double entry = HHH
favourable cases = 1
Probability =
Probability that she gets double entry fee =

Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total cases = 8(HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, TTT, TTH, THT, HTT)
case in which she gets entry book = 6(HHT, HTH, THH, TTH, THT, HTT)
favourable cases = 6
Probability =
Probability that she gets entry fees =
