Abstract

Imagine a usual coin tossing with two possible outcomes ω = ‘head’ or ‘tail’ each of them having the probability 1/2. In another example of a dice tossing with six possible equiprobable outcomes ω = 1,...,6; what is the probability of the event {ω is even}? The answer is of course 1/2 (why?).
