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

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%

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 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

The probability that the die tossed will land on a number that is smaller than 5 is 4/6 or 2/3. Smaller than 5 is 1 - 4 and 6 is the sample space.

First, you find the probability of picking 1 in 5 disregarding order (combination). 5 C 1 = 5/1 = 5 Then you divide that by the possible number of outcomes which is 25. 5/ 2^5= .0195

Each coin toss is a Bernoulli trial with a probability of success of .5. The probability of tossing heads exactly 3 times out of five is3 ~ Bin(5, 1/2), which equals(5!/(3!(5-3)!))(0.5^3)(1-0.5)^(5-3), which is 0.3125.

The chance is 50%-50% that it will be heads or tails; this does not change regardless of the number of previous tosses and their results.

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

There is a 50% chance that it will land on heads each toss. You need to clarify the question: do you mean what is the probability that it will land on heads at least once, exactly once, all five times?

The experimental probability of a number cube that lands on 5 four times in a twenty toss trial is Pexp(5) = 4/20 = 1/5 = 0.20 = 20%

Probability is the chance (in percentage or decimal) of a particular event to happen. lets say that you tossed a coin. the possible events to happen are ending up with heads or tails. the probability of having a head is 50% or .5 while the probability of having a tails is 50% or .5. to solve for the probability, divide the particular event with the total number of possible events. ex. what is the probability of getting a 3 when you rolled a dice? particular event= having a 3= 1 event total number of events= having either a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6= 6 events particular event/ total number of events= 1/6 hoped i helped!

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

Prob(at least 4 heads) = Prob(4 heads) + Prob(5 heads) = 5/32 + 1/32 = 6/32 = 3/16

Assume the coin is fair, so there are equal amount of probabilities for the choices.There are two possible choices for a flip of a fair coin - either a head or a tail. The probability of getting a head is &Acirc;&frac12;. Similarly, the probability of getting a tail is &Acirc;&frac12;.Use Binomial to work out this problem. You should get:(5 choose 4)(&Acirc;&frac12;)4(&Acirc;&frac12;).(5 choose 4) indicates the total number of ways to obtain 4 tails in 5 flips.(&Acirc;&frac12;)4 indicates the probability of obtaining 4 tails.(&Acirc;&frac12;) indicates the probability of obtaining the remaining number of head.Therefore, the probability is 5/32.

The probability of getting a head on each occasion if a coin is tossed five times is equal to 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 (that is, 1/25) = 1/32 or one in thirty-two. The probability of getting a head on the fifth toss is 1/2. All other tosses are independent of the fifth toss. The probability of getting at least one head when tossing the coin 5 times: Since there are 32 possible combinations and only one of those combinations is all tails you could expect to toss a combination with a head 31/32 times. The probability is 0.96875.
