Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

It is true.

When tossing a coin there are only 2 possibilities. Either it will be head or tail.

Also the sum probability of all the outcomes is 1.

P(head) + P(tail) = 1

P(tail) = 1 - P(head) = 1 - 0.51 = 0.49

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
