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.

0The opposite of getting at most two heads is getting three heads. The probability of getting three heads is (1/2)^2, which is 1/8. The probability of getting at most two heads is then 1 - 1/8 which is 7/8.

the probability of getting heads-heads-heads if you toss a coin three times is 1 out of 9.

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

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 of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 3 heads is 1/2

It is (1/2)3 = 1/8 or 0.125

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%

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.

The probability is 0.09766%.Each toss has a ½ chance to be heads. To combine probabilities use multiply them. So the probability to get two heads out of two tosses is ½ * ½, and three heads out of three tosses is ½ * ½ * ½. So the exact answer is 0.5^10

The probability of getting 3 or more heads in a row, one or more times is 520/1024 = 0.508 Of these, the probability of getting exactly 3 heads in a row, exactly once is 244/1024 = 0.238

You still still have a 1:2 chance of getting heads regardless of the times you flip.

The mathematical probability of getting heads is 0.5. 70 heads out of 100 tosses represents a probability of 0.7 which is 40% larger.

Ideally, the probability of getting any specific combination of length n is 0.5n = 1/2n. For n = 3, this is 0.125 = 1/8.

The probability of getting heads on three tosses of a coin is 0.125. Each head has a probability of 0.5. Since the events are sequentially unrelated, simply raise 0.5 to the power of the number of tosses (3) and get 0.125, or 1 in 8.

1/2 chance of getting heads or tails 5 times 1/10

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

The probability of flipping a fair coin four times and getting four heads is 1 in 16, or 0.0625. That is simply the probability of one head (0.5) raised to the power of 4.

There are 8 permutations of flipping a coin 3 times, or of flipping 3 coins one time. They are, with the permutations of two heads bolded...TTTTTHTHTTHHHTTHTHHHTHHH... thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 2 heads is 3 in 8, or 0.375.

Answer this Question : Probability of getting 10 heads in a row is(1/2)^10 = 1/1024 = 0.000976 or 0.098 %

There are 8 possible outcomes when a coin is tossed 3 times. Here they are:1. Heads, Heads, Tails.2. Heads, Tails, Heads.3. Tails, Heads, Heads.4. Heads, Heads, Heads.5. Tails, Tails, Heads.6. Tails, Heads, Tails.7. Heads, Tails, Tails.8. Tails, Tails, Tails.There is only one outcome that is heads, heads, heads, so the probability of three heads coming up in three coin tosses is 1 in 8 or 0.125 for that probability.

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.

It depends on how many times you toss it.

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.

Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 %

If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.
