russ tosses a fair coin 40 times the coin lands on head 17 times and tails 23 times what is the probability and theoretical probability of the coin landing on head

Accepted Solution

Answer:Theoretical Probability: 1/2Actual Probability: 17/40Step-by-step explanation:When you toss a coin, it can land on one of either Heads, or tails. This is a 1 out of 2 (or 1/2) chance of each happening. This is the theoretical probability, since real life will most likely not follow this exactly, as shown by the tests in the question. In the question, it says that it landed on heads 17/40 times, meaning that the probability is 17/40.
