It is given that

Number of trials = 500

Number of heads = 285

Number of tails = 215

(i) Consider E as the event of getting a head

So we get

P (E) = number of heads coming up/ total number of trials

By substituting the values

P (E) = 285/500

We get

P (E) = 0.57

(ii) Consider F as the event of getting a tail

So we get

P (F) = number of tails coming up/ total number of trials

By substituting the values

P (F) = 215/500

We get

P (F) = 0.43
