Heads have a person on it. Tails have something else on it.

There are 8 possible outcomes when a coin is tossed 3 times. Here they are:1. Heads, Heads, Tails.2. Heads, Tails, Heads.3. Tails, Heads, Heads.4. Heads, Heads, Heads.5. Tails, Tails, Heads.6. Tails, Heads, Tails.7. Heads, Tails, Tails.8. Tails, Tails, Tails.There is only one outcome that is heads, heads, heads, so the probability of three heads coming up in three coin tosses is 1 in 8 or 0.125 for that probability.


Heads+Heads ; Heads+Tails ; Tails+Tails


The probability of the coin flip being heads or tails is 100%.


1heads heads heads 2heads heads tails 3heads tails heads 4heads tails tails 5tails tails tails 6tails tails heads 7tails heads tails 8tails heads heads


The probability is 0%. The result will be heads or it will be tails but it cannot be heads and tails.


The probability of a fair coin landing on heads or tails is even, i.e. 50/50.


It is 100%. The coin will result in heads or tails since there are no other possible outcomes.


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


Assuming the coins are fair, two-sided coins, and landing on their sides is not an option, there are four possible outcomes if you consider coin a having a head and coin b having a tail being a different instance from coin a being a tail and coin be having a head. Here they are; Coin A | Coin B Heads | Tails Heads | Heads Tails....| Heads Tails....| Tails


Because you are thinking permutations rather than combinations. There are four permutations of two coins, but there are only three combinations, because it does not matter which coin is heads and which coin is tails. As a result, the combination of heads and tails has a 0.5 probability, while two heads or two tails each have a 0.25 probability.

The outcomes are: heads, tails, tails or tails, heads, tails or tails, tails, heads. You can see that there are 3 possible outcomes with exactly 1 head.


Your question is slightly vague, so I will pose a more defined question: What is the probability of 3 coin tosses resulting in heads exactly twice? This is a pretty easy question to answer. The three possible (winning) outcomes are: 1. Heads, Heads, Tails. 2. Heads, Tails, Heads. 3. Tails, Heads, Heads. If we look at the possible combination of other (losing) outcomes, we can easily determine the probability: 4. Heads, Heads, Heads. 5. Tails, Tails, Heads. 6. Tails, Heads, Tails. 7. Heads, Tails, Tails. 8. Tails, Tails, Tails. This means that to throw heads twice in 3 flips, we have a 3 in 8 chance. This is because there are 3 winning possibilities out of a total of 8 winning and losing possibilities.


Heads. The obverse is the front of the coin. Its opposite (the back of the coin) is the reverse.


None, since that would imply that in 18 cases the coin did not show heads or tails!


Heads - ½ Tails - ½ 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.


2. There is heads and there is tails.


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


The sample space when flipping a coin is [heads, tails].


Each time you flip a coin, the probability of getting either heads or tails is 50%.


That there is the same chance of something happening as there is of something else happening. When tossing a coin, there is the same chance it will land on heads as there is that it will land on tails. So landing on heads and landing on tails are equally probable.That there is the same chance of something happening as there is of something else happening.

Theoretical is 50% Heads, 50% tails: 30-Heads, 30-Tails (theoretical)


Five coin flips. Any outcome on a six-sided die has a probability of 1 in 6. If I assume that the order of the outcome does not matter, the same probability can be achieved with five flips of the coin. The possible outcomes of five flips of a coin are as follows: 5 Heads 5 Tails 4 Heads and 1 Tails 4 Tails and 1 Heads 3 Heads and 2 Tails 3 Tails and 2 Heads For six possible outcomes.


The experimental probability of a coin landing on heads is 7/ 12. if the coin landed on tails 30 timefind the number of tosses?
