What is the probability of getting all heads or all tails if you flip a coin three times?

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.


What is the probability of tossing a coin three times and getting it on heads each time?

Each toss has a 1/2 probability of getting heads. Each toss is an independent event. So three heads in a row (heads AND heads AND heads) would have a probability of:1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = (1/2)^3 = 1/(2^3) = 1/8 = 12.5%

50% or 1/2. There is 1 heads on a coin (numerator) There are 2 sides on a coin (denominator)



What is the probability of flipping a coin twice and getting two heads?

The probability is 25%. The probability of flipping a coin once and getting heads is 50%. In your example, you get heads twice -- over the course of 2 flips. So there are two 50% probabilities that you need to combine to get the probability for getting two heads in two flips. So turn 50% into a decimal --> 0.5 Multiply the two 50% probabilities together --> 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25. Therefore, 0.25 or 25% is the probability of flipping a coin twice and getting heads both times.


What are 3 probabilities of getting heads when you flip a quarter?
