The probability of 2 coins both landing on heads or both landing on tails is 1/2 because there are 4 possible outcomes. Head, head. Head, tails. Tails, tails. Tails, heads. Tails, heads is different from heads, tails for reasons I am unsure of.

There are two answers to this question. If it can only land on heads or tails up, then there is a 50% chance ( or half a chance) it will land heads up, but that's not necessarily true. But, if it can land on heads, tails, or sides, then there is a 16% chance it will land tails up.

With 4 coins you have 24 (16) possibilities. If we wanted a specific coin to land 'tails' while the others landed 'heads' we would have one possibilty out of 16. Since we don't care which of the coins lands 'tails,' we have four chances in 16 or a 25 percent chance.

There are 10 possibilities. For every space on the spinner you land on, there are two other outcomes (heads and tails). Say the colors are Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, and Purple. Here would be the final outcomes. Blue - heads or tails Green - heads or tails Yellow - heads or tails Red - heads or tails Purple - heads or tails

Since it is a certainty that a coin must land on either heads or tails, the probability must be 1.

50/50. There are two sides (heads and tails), so half of the time it will land on heads. 49.5% or something like that because the coin can land on heads, tails, or on its edge. but the likelihood is like a fraction of a percent, but it is possible

If we knew that, we would be rich by now. But we don't, and we're not.Here are the probabilities, in one toss of 2 random coins:-- Two heads . . . . . 25%-- Two tails. . . . . . . 25%-- One heads and one tails . . . 50%

Depending on the specifications, it could be 1/4 (25%) or 1/2 (50%). If you specify that Coin A must be heads and Coin B is tails, then it is 25%: Because you have 1/2 chance for each coin, you multiply these chances together : (1/2) x (1/2) = 1/4However if you just want 'one of the coins' to be heads, and 'the other coin' to be tails, then it is 1/2 (50%). Here are the 4 possible outcomes:Both A & B are headsBoth A & B are tailsA is heads, B is tailsA is tails, B is heads.So for outcomes # 3 & 4 meets our criteria. This is 2 out of the 4 possible, or 2/4 = 1/2 or 50%.

50% probablility, or 1/2, that is, a one in two chance.There is an equal chance that the coin will land either heads or tails.

there is even chance of having heads or tails since there is only 1 head and 1 tail on a penny.

3 coins can land in 8 different ways. Only one of these ways is all tails. So the probability of rolling at least one heads is 7/8 = 87.5% .

there is a 1/2 chance that it will land on heads and 1/2 chance it will land on tails. it dosent matter what the stats are

The expected value is the number of tosses times the probability of tails, so: E(number of tails) = 52 * 1/2 = 52/2 = 26

Heads - &frac12; Tails - &frac12; There are two reasonable outcomes of flipping a coin. You could get heads or tails. Some might argue that the third outcome is that the coin will land on the edge.

1/4 you see if you flip two coins there's a better chance you'll get a head and a tail then any thing else. 2/4 you'll get a head and a tail, 1/4 you'll get two heads and 1/4 you'll get two tails.

An event is an outcome or set of outcomes of an experiment. For example, if you want a coin to land on heads when you are flipping it, and it DOES land on heads, THAT is the event. If it lands on tails, that outcome is the complement
