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:

head head head

head head tail

head tail head

tail head head

tail tail head

head tail tail

tail head tail

tail tail tail

There they are!

### How many outcomes are possible of a coin is tossed 3 times?

It depends on the definition of an outcome. If you care about
the order of the tosses, <br /> 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).

### If you toss a coin 5 times how many outcomes are there?

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.
