If you flip a coin 3 times how many possible outcomes are there?
There are 2 possibilities for each toss. Since the three tosses are independent (one trial does not affect the outcome of the other trials), there are 2 * 2 * 2 = 8 total possible outcomes.
The outcomes are:
If you flip a coin 2 times, there are 4 possible outcomes; HH, HT, TH, TT.
Four outcomes, three combinations.
Two possible outcomes for each flip. 2,048 possible histories of 11 flips.
I am guessing SamJoe, means SAM and JOE not one person, so three people flip a coin, we have two outcomes each times, so 23= 8 possible outcomes. If you had n people, there would be 2n outcomes. For example, if two people flip there are 4 outcomes HH TT HT or TH
How do you find the sample space of an experiment where you flip a coin 6 times and note the number of heads?
The sample space consists of all the possible outcomes. A flip of a coin has 2 outcomes, H,T. The total number of outcomes for 6 flips are 26 or 64.
enless you include it landing on it's side the two possible outcomes for this are: Heads and Tails
There are 24 = 16 ordered outcomes, that is outcomes in which the order of the results is relevant. If not, there are 5 outcomes (0 heads, 1 head, 2 heads, 3 heads and 4 heads).
Two mutually exclusive outcomes. You flip a coin, and only heads and tails are possible.
If you can identify the outcomes with who flipped each coin: eg Joe and Mary = Heads, Sam = Tails, then 23 = 8. Otherwise, 4.
In three flips of a fair coin, there are a total of 8 possible outcomes: T, T, T; T, T, H; T, H, T; T, H, H; H, H, H; H, H, T; H, T, H; H, T, T Of the possible outcomes, four of them (half) contain at least two heads, as can be seen by inspection. Note: In flipping a coin, there are two possible outcomes at each flipping event. The number of… Read More
3 ways, out of 12 possible outcomes.
2. There is heads and there is tails.
2*2*6 = 24 outcomes.
If you disregard the sequence of outcomes, there are 6 possible outcomes: 0H 5T 1H 4T 2H 3T 3H 2T 4H 1T and 5H 0T If not, there are 25 = 32 outcomes: TTTTT, TTTTH, TTTHT etc.
If each coin is a different color, then there are 32 possible outcomes. If you can't tell the difference between the coins, and you're just counting the number of heads and tails, then there are 6 possible outcomes: 5 heads 4 heads 3 heads 2 heads 1 heads all tails
Each flip has two possible outcomes and they are independent events, so there are 24 = 16 possible results. Of these, only 2 (HHHH, TTTT) are the same 4 each time, Thus: probability = 2/16 = 1/8
Ok, sounds like a trick question. Obviously, there can be only one result, either heads or tails. Generally, when we consider the set of possible outcomes, we would say a coin flip has 2: a head and a tail. If I really want to complicate the matter, I could include that the coin might land on an edge. Don't think its realistic to include landing on an edge as an outcome. Ok, sounds like a… Read More
Because there are only 2 outcomes for the flip of a coin, for 5 flips you just need to take (1/2)5, which equals 1/32. This implies there are 32 different outcomes for the case of tossing a coin 5 times. From these 32 outcomes 5 have exactly 4 heads: THHHH, HTHHH, HHTHH, HHHTH, and HHHHT. So the probability of getting exactly 4 heads when you toss a coin 5 times is: P(4H,!T) = 5/32 =… Read More
Not really. The theory(that if you have some process that can come out in multiple ways, then, over a long period of tests, the results will be about even if each of the possible outcomes has an equal chance of occurrence isn't literal. If you do flip the coin many more times, then the results will gravitate towards an even amount of occurrences, although it is unlikely for to be split perfectly evenly.
If you roll a standard die and flip a penny at the same time, there are 12 possible outcomes. You can find this out quickly by multiplying the number of outcomes of the coin (2) by the number of outcomes of the die (6). Here they are: Heads, 1 Heads, 2 Heads, 3 Heads, 4 Heads, 5 Heads, 6 Tails, 1 Tails, 2 Tails, 3 Tails, 4 Tails, 5 Tails, 6
as many times as you flip it
HHHH, HHHT, HHTH, HTHH, THHH, HHTT, HTHT, HTTH, THHT, THTH, TTHH, HTTT, THTT, TTHT, TTTH, TTTT.
Anything is possible!
Probability to get exactly 2 heads when flipping a coin 3 times knowing that you get at least one head?
Okay, lets write out the possible outcomes when flipping a coin 3 times: HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, TTH,THT,HTT,TTT That constitures 8 scenarios in which the coin can fall over a 3 flip trial. Now, it is known that you got "at least one head" so therefore we can rule out the no head scenario (TTT) which leaves us with 7. Of those 7 times, how many times does it fall heads exactly twice? Well, we… Read More
What is the probability of exactly three heads in four flips of a coin given at least two are heads?
If you know that two of the four are already heads, then all you need to find is the probability of exactly one heads in the last two flips. Number of possible outcomes of one flip of one coin = 2 Number of possible outcomes in two flips = 4 Number of the four outcomes that include a single heads = 2. Probability of a single heads in the last two flips = 2/4 =… Read More
You flip a coin nine times and obtain ttttttttt if you flip the coin one more time what is the probability of getting h?
The probability of a flipped coin landing heads or tails will always be 50% either way, no matter how many times you flip it.
Three people flip a coin and there are two possible outcome of a coin flip. (Except in one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes which begins: Mr. Hector B. Poole, resident of the Twilight Zone. Flip a coin and keep flipping it. What are the odds? Half the time it will come up heads, half the time tails. But in one freakish chance in a million, it'll land on its edge. Mr. Hector B. Poole… Read More
Well you start with the first event, how many possibilities, draw a line down for each one, and state what event occurred. I.e. a heads or tails of a coin. Then from each of these outcomes, draw the possible outcomes from each of the first events reflecting the second events, i.e. HH, HT, TH, TT. Third outcome (third flip of a coin) would look like this. HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT
An outcome is what actually happens, while the probability of that outcome is how likely that particular thing is to happen. Say I was flipping a coin. The probability of the outcome of heads is 1/2 because there are 2 possible outcomes and heads is only 1 of them. Then when I flip the coin, it lands on tails. The outcome is tails.
50%. there are only 2 choices heads or tails and that doesn't change no matter how many times you flip the coin
1 out of 8, or 12.5 %. With 3 coin tosses, there are 8 possible outcomes: T, T, T T, T, H T, H, T T, H, H H, T, T H, T, H H, H, T H, H, H Only one of them has 3 Heads (#8), so the probability is 1/8 = 12.5 %
For 4 coin tosses, there are 16 possible outcomes. Tails on 75% of 4 tosses is 3 times tails, and 1 time heads. This occurs in 4 of those 16 possibilities, so the probability is 4/16 = 1/4 (or 25%). But if the question is 'what is the probability that it's tails at least 75% of the time, then you have to add in the 1 where all 4 are tails, then you have 5/16… Read More
They are just used to make equations and make more things like more equations and estimates! Theoretical Probability: P(event) the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the number of possible outcomes, written as a ratio. example: number of favorable outcomes over number of possible outcomes Amelynn is hungry, so she gets out a bowl and puts in 2 red jelly beans, 3 blue jelly beans, 12 pink jelly beans, and 3 yellow jelly… Read More
The probability of 'heads' on any flip is 50% .
If you flip two coin 68 times what is the best prediction possible for the number of times both coins will land on heads?
The best estimate is 17.
If the coin is not biased, the answer is 0.375
The odds of corerectly predicting 1 number on a dice with 1 throw is 1 in 6. Predicting the same number to appear in two throws, its 1 in (6 * 6) 36 > Same deal with the coin, except less options, so 1 in (2 * 2) 4
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).
It's human nature to think so, but no. Even after getting 100 heads in a row, the odds of the next flip being heads is still 50%.
it depends on if you can ride a unicycle dressed as Hitler with one shoe and no sock on the other foot and one hand tied behind your back with a fish being juggled by the other hand and your tongue.
The probability of getting exactly seven tails if you flip a coin eight times is: P(7T1H) = 8∙(1/2)8 =0.03125 ≈ 3.1%
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
A fair coin would be expected to land on heads 10 times on average.
Let H mean Head and T mean Tail. The outcomes from flipping a coin twice are the same as flipping two coins together. You might get H + H, or H + T, or T + H, or T + T. So there are four possible outcomes. They are each equally likely but if you ask, "What are the chances of throwing H + H" the answer is 1 out of 4 or 25% or… Read More
Each time you flip a fair coin it has the same equal chance of landing on heads or tails. That is, even if you get (for example) 19 heads in a row, the next flip still has 50% chance of landing on tails (if the coin is fair).
It is approx 0.1445
The possible outcomes are: hhh hht hth thh htt tht tth ttt If you mean exactly 2 heads (and not 3 heads), then you can see 3 out of 8 possibilities have exactly 2 heads. So the probability is 3/8 or 0.375 If you mean at least 2 heads (2 or 3 heads), then 4/8 or 0.5.
Statistics deals with determination of enough data points to be able to predict future outcomes. A single observation is not enough to establish reality or predict the future outcome. If you flip a coin and it lands heads, is it enough to say that every time you flip a coin it will be heads? Of course not!
The coin can come up in either one of 2 ways. For each of those . . . The cube can come up in any one of 6 ways. The total number if different outcomes is (2 x 6) = 12 -- Heads and one of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) = 6 possibilities -- Tails and one of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) = 6 more possibilities
The probability of getting all heads if you flip a coin three times is: P(HHH) = 1/2 ∙ 1/2 ∙ 1/2 = 1/8. The probability of getting all tails if you flip a coin three times is: P(TTT) = 1/2 ∙ 1/2 ∙ 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.
