# Is it true that each time a coin is tossed there is a 75 percent chance that the coin will land heads up?

123

No. There are 2 sides of the coin, so it's a 50 50 chance. There is an equal oppurtunity for it to land on heads or tails.

## Related Questions No, when you toss a coin there is a 50 percent chance it will land heads up. The chances if someone winning a coin toss are 50/50. Depending on which side of the coin one chooses such as head, when the coin is tossed there is a 50 percent chance that the coin will land on either heads or tails. 0.5, 1/2, 50% The probability for heads versus tails does not change based on the amount of times the coin is tossed. It will always be a 50% chance.   Since the coin only has two sides, the probability of getting either heads or tails in any one toss is 1 in 2, or 50%. 50 precent chance. Everytime you toss it, 50 percent. 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.   There is a 50% chance that it will land on heads each toss. You need to clarify the question: do you mean what is the probability that it will land on heads at least once, exactly once, all five times? The odds that a tossed coin will land tails side down remain one in two no matter how many times the coin has previously been tossed. You can use a tree diagram or a binomial: I choose a binomial: 8!/(4! * 4!) * .5^4 * .5 ^ 4 70 ways 8 flips can end in 4 v 4, * chance of 4 heads, * chance of 4 tails = .2734375 ~ 27.34 percent.   There are two sides on a coin. The odds are 50:100, or 1:2. Half the time the coin SHOULD land on heads. The probability is 0.25.Look at it this way--if you toss a coin twice, there are four equally-probable outcomes:tails, tailstails, headsheads, tailsheads, headsSo the probability of heads twice in a row is one in four, or 25%.the chance of tossing heads is 1/2 (50%) The chance of tossing the next heads is 1/2 (50%) 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 (25%) There are 6 rolls for the die times 2 possibilities for the coin, so there are 12 total possibilities. Because there is a 1/2 chance of flipping a head, the answer is half of 12, or 6. Coins do not have numbers, there is only the probability of heads or tails. I tossed the coin and true enough, heads was facing up. lets get some facts odds of head on 1 coin 50% or evens odds of no head 50% or evens the possible results vary from 1 coin to 2 coins. 1 coin has 2 results heads or tails 2 coins have 4 results. heads heads, tails tails, tails heads, heads tails. each outcome has a probability of 25%. for the question we remove the heads and tail probability and we have 2 outcomes with heads and one without. so 2 to 1 chance or 33.3333 recuring chance. There is a probability of 0.5 of heads on each coin, so there is a 1/2 * 1/2 *1/2 = 1/8 = 0.125 chance that all coins land heads. You can also express this as a percentage, 12.5% chance. The odds are 1 in 8 that this can happen.  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 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 ###### Math and ArithmeticProbabilityWord Brain TeasersStatisticsExample Sentences Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
