# How many possible outcomes are there if you toss a coin 3 times?

001

2x2x2=8 possible outcomes.

In general for n tosses there are 2^n outcomes.

## Related Questions If a coin is tossed 15 times there are 215 or 32768 possible outcomes.    If you flip a coin 2 times, there are 4 possible outcomes; HH, HT, TH, TT.  Two possible outcomes for each flip. 2,048 possible histories of 11 flips. There are 210 total possible outcomes from flipping a coin 10 times.There is one possible outcome where there are 0 heads.There are 10 possible outcomes where there is 1 head.So there are 210 - 11 possible outcomes with at least 2 heads.(1013) Two times the number of outcomes of the spin - which is not specified in the question. The cube has 6 possible outcomes.The coin has 2 possible outcomes.There are 6 x 2 = 12 possible outcomes for a trialthat involves both the cube and the coin.   Each toss has 2 outcomes; so the number of outcomes for 3 tosses is 2*2*2 = 8 2 sides x 10 tosses, so your possibilities is 2^10 or 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 =1024 outcomes. 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. For a coin toss, there are 2 possible outcomes (heads or tails). For five tosses, therefore, there are 25 possible outcomes (25 = 32). However, this assumes that order is important (i.e. that HtttH is different to tHtHt). If you don't care what order the heads or tails fall in, there are only 6 outcomes. 5 outcomes if the sequence is ignored. 24 = 16 outcomes in all. There are 24 = 16 ordered outcomes, that is outcomes in which the order of the results is relevant. If not, there are 5 outcomes (0 heads, 1 head, 2 heads, 3 heads and 4 heads). I am guessing SamJoe, means SAM and JOE not one person, so three people flip a coin, we have two outcomes each times, so 23= 8 possible outcomes. If you had n people, there would be 2n outcomes. For example, if two people flip there are 4 outcomes HH TT HT or TH There is 2 outcomes for flipping the coin, and 6 outcomes for rolling the cube. The total outcomes for both are 2*6 = 12. There is 2 outcomes for flipping the coin, and 6 outcomes for rolling the cube. The total outcomes for both are 2*6 = 12.  There are technically 8 possible outcomes if you are talking about the side of the coin it lands on. Each coin has 2 possible outcomes (landing on heads and landing on tails). To figure out the number of outcomes for all the coins you multiply the outcomes for all of the coins together: 2 X 2 X 2= 8. We use three coins (quarter, nickel, dime) each are flipped only once. We get 8 possible outcomes (or four outcomes as an alternative). Possible outcomes of a single dice are 6 ( 1,2,3,4,5,6) So if 5 such dices are rolled then the number of possible outcomes are 6 mulitiplied by 6 five times. 6x6x6x6x6x6=46656 possible outcomes.
