# If you flip a coin 10 times what is the posability that the coin will land on heads?

The probability that the coin will land on heads each time is 1/2. (1/2) to the tenth power is 1/1024. This is the probability that the coin will not land on heads. Subtract it from one to get the probability that it will : 1-(1/1024)

There is a 1023/1024 or about 99.90234% chance that the coin will land on heads at least once.

(There is a 1/1024 chance that the coin will land on heads all four times.)

## Related Questions  50%. there are only 2 choices heads or tails and that doesn't change no matter how many times you flip the coin   The probability of a flipped coin landing heads or tails will always be 50% either way, no matter how many times you flip it. To get the answer, divide 14 by 25, which will give you .56. You then subtract that from 1.0, and the answer is .44, or 44 %. The probability that a single coin flip will come up heads is 0.5. It could land on heads any number of times between zero and 150.The most probable result, if the coin is honest and balanced, is 75 times. There are two sides to the coin, so the probability of getting heads or tails on one flip of the coin is 1/2 or 50%. You still still have a 1:2 chance of getting heads regardless of the times you flip. The probability of the coin flip being heads or tails is 100%.  For 3 coin flips: 87% chance of getting heads at least once 25% chance of getting heads twice 13% chance of getting heads all three times I f you flip the same coin 5 times in a row, chances are 1/32 ( 1/2 each flip multiplied 5 times) Ans: 1 in 32 The probability of getting all heads if you flip a coin three times is: P(HHH) = 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 = 1/8. The probability of getting all tails if you flip a coin three times is: P(TTT) = 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 = 1/8. The probability of getting all heads or all tails if you flip a coin three times is: P(HHH or TTT) = P(HHH) + P(TTT) = 2/8 = 1/4.   Each time you flip a coin, the probability of getting either heads or tails is 50%.  Flip a coin 1000 times, counting the number of 'heads' that occur. The relative frequency probability of 'heads' for that coin (aka the empirical probability) would be the count of heads divided by 1000. Please see the link.    The chances are always the same:1/2. Sp it really depends on your luck, because if you flip a coin 100 times, it doesn't necessarily mean that tails will come up 50 times. According to the Law of Large Numbers, as the number of times you flip a fair coin approaches infinity, the proportion of tails will approach 0.5 (as will that of heads). The probability of getting 6 heads and 1 tail when flipping a fair coin 7 times is:7*(1/2)6*(1/2) = 7/128.
