If you Flip four coins at once what is probability of 1 head and 3 tails?

1/16 * * * * * The correct answer, however, is 4/16 = 1/4.


If You flip 9 fair coins Amazingly the first 8 flips all come up heads What is the probability that the final flip will be a head too?

1/2 apex It does not matter what each prior flip's result was. Each flip has a probability of 0.5 heads or tails. Coins do not have "memory".


What is the probability of a head on the first flip and a tail on the second flip?

Probability of H on the first flip = 1/2Probability of T on the second flip = 1/2Probability of both = (1/2 x 1/2) = 1/4 = 25%

What is the probability of obtaining exactly five heads in six flips of a coin given that at least one is a head?

The probability that you will toss five heads in six coin tosses given that at least one is a head is the same as the probability of tossing four heads in five coin tosses1. There are 32 permutations of five coins. Five of them have four heads2. This is a probability of 5 in 32, or 0.15625. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1Simplify the problem. It asked about five heads but said that at least one was a head. That is redundant, and can be ignored. 2This problem was solved by simple inspection. If there are four heads in five coins, this means that there is one tail in five coins. That fact simplifies the calculation to five permutations exactly.


When tossing 5 coins simultaneously what is the probability that at least 1 head is showing?

Probability of no heads = (0.5)^5 = 0.03125Probability of at least one head = 1 - probability of no heads = 1 - 0.03125 = 0.96875


When tossing 5 coins simultaneously find the probability that at least 1 head is showing.?

This is easiest to solve by working out the probability that no heads show and subtracting this from 1 to give the probability that at least one head shows: Assuming unbiased coins which won't land and stay on their edge, the probability of head = probability of tail = ½ → probability no heads = probability 5 tails = ½^5 = 1/32 → probability of at least one head = 1 - 1/32 = 31/32 = 0.96875 = 96.875 % = 96 7/8 %


Two coins are tossed what is the probability of getting a head?

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 > 100% ? Doh!


Probability of getting 1 head tossing two coins?

By tossing two coins the possible outcomes are:H & HH & TT & HT & TThus the probability of getting exactly 1 head is 2 out 4 or 50%. If the question was what is the probability of getting at least 1 head then the probability is 3 out of 4 or 75%


What is the theoretical probability of getting a head and a tail?

if you flip a coin once, the chance it will be heads is 50%


When tossing 5 coins simultaneously can you find the probability that at least 1 head is showing?

Probability not at least 1 head showing is when all 5 coins are tails: (1/2)5=1/32 Therefore probability at least 1 head is showing is 1-1/32=31/32


If you toss 4 coins what is the probability of getting four heads and zero tails?

The probability of getting a head is 1/2 and if you toss it 4 times, the probability of 4 heads is (1/2)^4=1/16 since the tosses are independent events.


What is the probability of flipping a coin twice and getting head on the first flip?

The probability is 1/2 because the second outcome has no affect on the first outcome.



What is the probability that the earth will flip 3 heads in a row?

None the earth has no head! Please correct me if I am wrong...


What is the probability of getting one head if 3 coins are tossed?

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


When 2 coins are tossed simultaneously what is probabiliy of getting atleast two heads?

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%



How do theoretical probability and experimental probability relate?

Take for example, flipping a coin. Theoretically, if I flip it, there is a 50% chance that I flip a head and a a 50% chance that I flip a tail. That would lead us to believe that out of 100 flips, there should theoretically be 50 heads and 50 tails. But if you actually try this out, this may not be the case. What you actually get, say 46 heads and 54 tails, is the experimental probability. Thus, experimental probability differs from theoretical probability by the actual results. Where theoretical probability cannot change, experimental probability can.


If you flip a coin to determine the pizza if the coin sHow is heads the pizza is garlic if the coin is tails the pizza is cheese what is the probability that the pizza would be garlic on two consecuti?

The flip of a fair coin is 0.5 heads and tails, so you want the probability of head & head. This probability of garlic, garlic two consecutive tosses is 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25.


If a coin is flip 9 times and get all H What is the probability of an H on next flip?

The probability of the coin landing "head" side up is 50/50, meaning it could land "head" side up or "tail" side up. The odds of any single coin flip are always the same, no matter what happened on the previous tosses -- provided the coin is not a "double-head" (or "double-tail") "trick" coin


What is the probability that you flip a head after you flipped 100 coins and 87 were heads and 13 were tails?

50% Every time you flip a coin, there is a 50% chance it will come up heads and a 50% chance it will come up tails, no matter how many times you have already flipped it, and no matter what the results were of previous flips.


When you flip a coin what is the probability that it will come up tails?

the probability would be 50 to 50 chancesThere's generally a 50% chance it will come up tails, but some coins have heavier designs on one side, so these may be more biased to a head or a tail over the term.If it is a fair coin, then 0.5


What is the probability that the first two flips will both be heads and the third flip will be either heads or tails if you flip three fair coins?

I assume you mean what's the chance of at least two heads showing when three fair coins are tossed. There are 8 possible outcomes as each coin can either be head or tails. For 3 heads, all 3 coins must show a head → 1 success For 2 heads, one coin will be a Tail; each coin could be a tail in turn → 3 successes → Pr = (1+3)/8 = 4/8 = 1/2 If you are wanting the probability that the first TWO specific coins are heads and the last, third, coin is either, then: Pr(head) = 1/2 → Pr(1st 2 heads, 3rd anything) = 1/2 × 1/2 × 1 = 1/4
