# Has anyone ever flipped a coin 24 times and got all heads?

The probability of flipping a coin 24 times and getting all heads is less than 1 in 16 million. (.524) It would seem that no one has ever done that.

suppose you flipped a coin 100 times you might have flipped heads 50 time and tails 50 times

The possible outcomes of a coin that is flipped are heads or tails.

The correct answer is 1/2. The first two flips do not affect the likelihood that the third flip will be heads (that is, the coin has no "memory" of the previous flips). If you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads each time, the probability of heads on the 101st try would still be 1/2. (Although, if you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads all 100 times - the odds of which are 2^100, or roughly 1 in 1,267,650,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - you should begin to wonder about whether it's a fair coin!). If you were instead asking "What is the probability of flipping a coin three times and having it land on "heads" all three times, then the answer is 1/8.

30 times because it landed on heads 20 times, but he flipped the coin 50 times. 20+30=50.

The probability that a coin flipped four consecutive times will always land on heads is 1 in 16. Since the events are sequentially unrelated, take the probability of heads in 1 try, 0.5, and raise that to the power of 4... 1 in 24 = 1 in 16

The sample space is HH, HT, TH, HH. Since the HH combination can occur once out of four times, the probability that if a coin is flipped twice the probability that both will be heads is 1/4 or 0.25.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

Probability of not 8 heads = 1- Prob of 8 heads. Prob of 8 heads = 0.5^8 = 0.003906 Prob of not 8 heads= 1- 0.003906 = 0.99604

The probability is always 50/50 even if you flipped 100 or 1000000 coins.

The probability of flipping a fair coin four times and getting four heads is 1 in 16, or 0.0625. That is simply the probability of one head (0.5) raised to the power of 4.

The probability of a flipped coin landing heads or tails will always be 50% either way, no matter how many times you flip it.

If a coin is flipped 4 times, the probability of getting 3 heads is: 4C3 (1/2)^3 (1/2)^1 = 4(1/8)(1/2) = 4/16 = 1/4

the probability of getting heads-heads-heads if you toss a coin three times is 1 out of 9.

It is neither. If you repeated sets of 8 tosses and compared the number of times you got 6 heads as opposed to other outcomes, it would comprise proper experimental probability.

50% Every time you flip a coin, there is a 50% chance it will come up heads and a 50% chance it will come up tails, no matter how many times you have already flipped it, and no matter what the results were of previous flips.
