Q:
# Football teams toss a coin to see who will get their choice of kicking or receiving to begin a game. the probability that given team will lose the toss three games in a row is 0.125. a. True b. False

Accepted Solution

A:

In a toss coin, the only result is a head or a tails. Therefore
that ½ of the time you can win or ½ of the time you can lose. Therefore the
probability of losing three games in a row is:
P = (1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2)

P = 0.125 Therefore the answer is “True”.

P = 0.125 Therefore the answer is “True”.
