# If you toss a coin three times how many possible outcomes are there?

###### Wiki User

In three tosses there can be four possible outcomes: three heads, three tails, two heads and one tail, and one head and two tails. ^^^That is wrong
A coin is tossed N times. There are 2 possibilities when you toss a coin: heads and tails.
So the formula is 2^N (thats to the N power)

A coin tossed 3 times has 2^3=8 possible outcomes:

tail tail tail

There they are!

when you toss a coin three times, the total number of possible outcomes is

If a coin is tossed 15 times there are 215 or 32768 possible outcomes.

If you flip a coin 2 times, there are 4 possible outcomes; HH, HT, TH, TT.

2x2x2=8 possible outcomes. In general for n tosses there are 2^n outcomes.

There are 210 total possible outcomes from flipping a coin 10 times.There is one possible outcome where there are 0 heads.There are 10 possible outcomes where there is 1 head.So there are 210 - 11 possible outcomes with at least 2 heads.(1013)

The possible outcomes of a coin that is flipped are heads or tails.

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

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 possible outcomes expands as a function of the number of times the coin is flipped. One flip, two possible outcomes. Two flips, four possible outcomes. Three flips, eight possible outcomes. Four flips, sixteen possible outcomes. It appears that the number of possible outcomes is a power of the number of possible outcomes, which is two. 21 = 2, 22 = 4, 23 = 8, 24 = 16, .... Looks like a pattern developing there. Welcome to this variant of permutations.

The cube has 6 possible outcomes.The coin has 2 possible outcomes.There are 6 x 2 = 12 possible outcomes for a trialthat involves both the cube and the coin.

There are two outcomes for each coin and three coins; 2 x 2 x 2 = 23 = 8 outcomes.

Two times the number of outcomes of the spin - which is not specified in the question.

We use three coins (quarter, nickel, dime) each are flipped only once. We get 8 possible outcomes (or four outcomes as an alternative).

There are 4 possible outcomes. There are 2 outcomes (heads or tails) on the first toss and 2 on the second toss. The possibilities are HH, TT, HT and TH.

Each toss has 2 outcomes; so the number of outcomes for 3 tosses is 2*2*2 = 8

It depends on the definition of an outcome. If you care about the order of the tosses, &lt;br /&gt; you get 2 possible outcomes per toss. Three tosses give you 2*2*2=8 possible outcomes. If you only care about the final number of heads and tails, there are 4 possible outcomes (3 heads, 2 heads and a tail, a head and two tails, or 3 tails).

For a coin toss, there are 2 possible outcomes (heads or tails). For five tosses, therefore, there are 25 possible outcomes (25 = 32). However, this assumes that order is important (i.e. that HtttH is different to tHtHt). If you don't care what order the heads or tails fall in, there are only 6 outcomes.

The outcomes are: heads, tails, tails or tails, heads, tails or tails, tails, heads. You can see that there are 3 possible outcomes with exactly 1 head.
