    Part A. the coin landed heads up 32 times out of the 60 times it was flipped this gives a probability of 32/60=.53 Part B. were now looking for the probability of it landing on tails which was 28 times we know 100-.53=.47 which would be our probability but we can also determine it like this 28/60=.4666 repeating which rounds up to .47
