The probability of getting two tails in the first two is 1/4. And it does not matter how many more times the coins are tossed after the first two tosses.

The probability of tossing a coin twice and getting tails both times is 1 in 4, or 25%. If you have already tossed a coin and had it land on tails, the probability that it will land on tails again the next time you toss it is 50%.

25% or 0.25 Probability of one tail is 0.50. Since two tails are independent events, the probability is 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25

only about 75% because very often it is not equal The probability of 3 heads and 3 tails is 0.3125

The probability to get tails once is 1/2 (for a fair coin) The probability to get tails twice = the probability to get it once x the probability to get it a second time The probability to get tails 4 times in a row is (1/2)4=1/16 The probability to get tails n times in a row is (1/2)n=1/2n The same thing is also true for heads (same probability: 1/2 each time)

0.5, 1/2, 50% The probability for heads versus tails does not change based on the amount of times the coin is tossed. It will always be a 50% chance.

The probability of the coin coming up heads each time is 1/8; likewise for 3 tails. The probability of getting 2 heads and 1 tail (in any order) or 2 tails and 1 head, is 3/8. There are lots of other events whose probability can be calculated when a coin is tossed 3 times, but the question doesn't specify what event is to have its probability calculated.

Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 %

The probability to get heads once is 1/2 as the coin is fair The probability to get heads twice is 1/2x1/2 The probability to get heads three times is 1/2x1/2x1/2 The probability to get tails once is 1/2 The probability to get tails 5 times is (1/2)5 So the probability to get 3 heads when the coin is tossed 8 times is (1/2)3(1/2)5=(1/2)8 = 1/256 If you read carefully you'll understand that 3 heads and 5 tails has the same probability than any other outcome = 1/256 As the coin is fair, each side has the same probability to appear So the probability to get 3 heads and 5 tails is the same as getting for instance 8 heads or 8 tails or 1 tails and 7 heads, and so on

The probability of Tails on the first toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the second toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the third toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the fourth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the fifth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the sixth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the seventh toss is 1/2.The probability of all of them is (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = (0.5)7 = 0.0078125= 0.78125 %

The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 &asymp; 3.13%

There is a one in two chance of tails every time, rewritten as 1/2 The probability of tail 3 times in a row is 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2= 1/8. So the answer is one in eight, or 12.5%

The probability of getting zero tails is 1/2. The probability of getting zero tails twice in a row is 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4. The probability of getting zero tails three times in a row is 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8, etc... .

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.

The probability of getting exactly seven tails if you flip a coin eight times is: P(7T1H) = 8&#8729;(1/2)8 =0.03125 &asymp; 3.1%

The probability of each coin flip, independently, is 0.5 or 50%. The probability of getting one result (either heads or tails) four times in a row is 0.5 to the fourth power or 0.0625, which equals 6.25%

If a fair coin is tossed 5 times, the probability of getting 5 heads is:P(H,H,H,H,H) = (1/2)5 = 1/32 = 0.03125 = 3.125% &acirc;&permil;&circ; 3.1%

the probability of getting one head and one tail on three flips of a coin is 1/9

Out of the 16 possible outcomes for a coin tossed four times, 4 of them result in 3 Tails &amp; 1 Head. They are: TTTH, TTHT, THTT, and HTTT.
