Given:

Tossing a coin.

To do:

We have to explain why tossing a coin is considered to be a fair way of deciding which team should get the bail at the beginning of a football game.

Solution:

When we toss a coin the two possible outcomes of the coin landing on a head or a tail is equally possible.

Hence, when we toss a coin, the outcomes head and tail are equally likely. So, the result of an individual coin toss is completely unpredictable which satisfies the required conditions.
