The probability is 0.5 regardless how many times you toss the coin."

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

The probability that the coin lands on the heads ones: 1/2Two times (1/2)^2 = 1/4Five times (1/2)^5 = 1/32 (so 1 in 32 attempts)n times (1/2)^n

Experimental probability is calculated by taking the data produced from a performed experiment and calculating probability from that data. An example would be flipping a coin. The theoretical probability of landing on heads is 50%, .5 or 1/2, as is the theoretical probability of landing on tails. If during an experiment, however, a coin is flipped 100 times and lands on heads 60 times and tails 40 times, the experimental probability for this experiment for landing on heads is 60%, .6 or 6/10. The experimental probability of landing on tails would be 40%, .4, or 6/10.

The probability that the coin will land on heads each time is 1/2. (1/2) to the tenth power is 1/1024. This is the probability that the coin will not land on heads. Subtract it from one to get the probability that it will : 1-(1/1024)There is a 1023/1024 or about 99.90234% chance that the coin will land on heads at least once.(There is a 1/1024 chance that the coin will land on heads all four times.)

The number of times a coin is tossed does not alter the probability of getting heads, which is 50% in every case, as long as the coin has not been rigged (i.e., a double-headed coin, a weighted coin) to alter the result.

Flip a coin 1000 times, counting the number of 'heads' that occur. The relative frequency probability of 'heads' for that coin (aka the empirical probability) would be the count of heads divided by 1000. Please see the link.

If the coin is fair and balanced, like Fox, then the probability is 50%.

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.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

About a 1 in 16 chance of getting a coin to land on heads 4 times in a row.

The probability is 0.09766%.Each toss has a &frac12; chance to be heads. To combine probabilities use multiply them. So the probability to get two heads out of two tosses is &frac12; * &frac12;, and three heads out of three tosses is &frac12; * &frac12; * &frac12;. So the exact answer is 0.5^10
