C1, C2, C3, C4The number of combinations is 4 base 2, or 16.There are 4 possible scenarios where you get 3 heads.So the odds are 4:16, or 1:4.

Coins do not have numbers, there is only the probability of heads or tails.

The probability that both coins are heads is the probability of one coin landing heads multiplied by the probability of the second coin landing heads: (.5) * (.5) = .25 or (1/2) * (1/2) = 1/4

Two coins tossed sample space is (H=Heads, T = Tails) as follows. HH, HT, TH, TT is the sample space.

Half the time they will be the same, half the time they will be different. Half of the time that they're the same they will be heads, half the time they are the same they will be tails. It's your homework, YOU figure it out. The way I figure it. There are four options: 1) heads / heads 2) heads / tails 3) tails / heads 4) tails / tails By process of chance, one out of four times both coins will be heads/heads. Therefore 780/4 = 195 times.

It is the event that one of the two coins lands showing tails and the other shows heads.

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.

Since each coin would have the outcome with Heads and Tails: Then among the 32 coins, we can have the possible outcomes from no Heads, 1 Head, 2 Heads, ....... , 31 Heads, 32 Heads. Therefore we would have 33 outcomes.

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.

Since a coin has two sides and it was tossed 5 times, there are 32 possible combinations of results. The probability of getting heads three times in 5 tries is 10/32. This is 5/16.

At least two heads with two coins? You can't get more.There are 4 different outcomes:tail-tail, head-tail, tail-head and head-head.You can use one out of four - which gives us the probability 1/4 = 0.25 = 25%

There are 4 events: 3 heads, 2 heads 1 tail, 1 head 2 tails, and 3 tails.

The sample space is 23 or 8; which can be listed out as: HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT. There are 2 of the 8 that have exactly 2 heads; so the probability of exactly two coins landing on heads is 2/8 or 1/4.

When two fair coins are tossed, you have the following possible outcomes: HH, HT, TH, TT. So, at most implies that you get either i) zero heads or ii) one head. From the possible outcomes we see that 3 times we satisify the outcome. Thus, probability of at most one head is 3/4.

There is a probability of 0.5 of heads on each coin, so there is a 1/2 * 1/2 *1/2 = 1/8 = 0.125 chance that all coins land heads. You can also express this as a percentage, 12.5% chance. The odds are 1 in 8 that this can happen.

They would come from 2 different coins.

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.

lets get some facts odds of head on 1 coin 50% or evens odds of no head 50% or evens the possible results vary from 1 coin to 2 coins. 1 coin has 2 results heads or tails 2 coins have 4 results. heads heads, tails tails, tails heads, heads tails. each outcome has a probability of 25%. for the question we remove the heads and tail probability and we have 2 outcomes with heads and one without. so 2 to 1 chance or 33.3333 recuring chance.

If you know which coin is which, there are 16possible outcomes.If you're only counting the number of Heads and Tails, there are 5 .
