Tossing a coin is an independent event. It's outcome does not depend on what happened before.

not quite. when you toss a coin it can come up either heads or tails.

so if I just gave you a coin and asked you to toss it you think there is a 1/10 chance of getting a head? which means you are saying there is a 9/10 chance of getting a tail does that sound right to you?
