These are independent one has no bearing on the other

1/6 because there are six sides to a dice and we already know the coin landed tails up so that takes that equation out of the picture. otherwise we would be left with figuring the probability of the coin and the dice, but since the question tells us that the coin landed tails up the answer will then be 1/6

The answer depends on the experiment: how many coins are tossed, how often, how many dice are rolled, how often.

The probability is 0.5The probability is 0.5The probability is 0.5The probability is 0.5

3/8 * * * * * That is the probability of getting EXACTLY 1H. The prob of getting one (or more) head is 7/8

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.

If the coin is tossed and the die rolled sufficiently many times then the probability is 1: the event is a certainty.For just one toss and roll, the probability is 0.25

If you have tossed a fair, balanced coin 100 times and it has landed on HEADS 100 consecutive times, the probability of tossing HEADS on the next toss is 50%.

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

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.

If they are fair dice, the probability is 0.0032If they are fair dice, the probability is 0.0032If they are fair dice, the probability is 0.0032If they are fair dice, the probability is 0.0032

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 opposite of getting at most two heads is getting three heads. The probability of getting three heads is (1/2)^2, which is 1/8. The probability of getting at most two heads is then 1 - 1/8 which is 7/8.

is it 50% or 100% dang, i just confused myself. what if you toss 3 coins all at the same time... what's the probability of getting a head then, is it &gt; 100% ? Doh!

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%.

The mathematical probability of getting heads is 0.5. 70 heads out of 100 tosses represents a probability of 0.7 which is 40% larger.

(1/2)^3 = 1/8th Since the initial probability (assuming independence) of getting a head in a single toss is one half (1/2) we just cube this probability because of the number of events we are performing. So if you were to try to calculate the probability of a coin being tossed 6 times it would be one half to the 6th power which is 1/64.

There is 24 or 16 outcomes. There is 4 ways to get heads once (HTTT &amp; THTT &amp; TTHT &amp; TTTH). So, the probability of getting heads only once if a fair coin is tossed 4 times is 4/16 or 1/4.
