You might have a flip-over double-strike which would bring several dollars from an error collector, but you should be able to see at least a trace of heads and tails on both sides. If the tails image that is on the heads side is reversed, it is possible that someone laid another coin on top of yours and hit it with a hammer. If that's what happened you just have a damaged coin. Someone familiar with minting errors would have to examine it to be sure.

There are eight possible results when flipping three coins (eliminating the highly unlikely scenario of one or more coins landing on their edge): Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Heads / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Heads Dime - Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Tails / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Tails

The two sides of a coin are referred to as "Heads" and "Tails" because, the obverse usually has somebody's "head" on it, like a King, Queen or President, etc. The reverse side is therefore referred to as "tails". Heads and tails.

there is even chance of having heads or tails since there is only 1 head and 1 tail on a penny.

If you roll a standard die and flip a penny at the same time, there are 12 possible outcomes. You can find this out quickly by multiplying the number of outcomes of the coin (2) by the number of outcomes of the die (6). Here they are: Heads, 1 Heads, 2 Heads, 3 Heads, 4 Heads, 5 Heads, 6 Tails, 1 Tails, 2 Tails, 3 Tails, 4 Tails, 5 Tails, 6

The worth of a triple stamped penny will vary depending upon its circulation and overall condition. It can be worth anywhere from $1.00 to thousands of dollars.

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.

If you find a penny on the heads side it is good luck if you find a penny on the tails side and pick it up it is bad luck

Heads+Heads ; Heads+Tails ; Tails+Tails

The myth is "If you pick up a penny heads up, you will have good luck. If you pick up a penny tails up, you will have the exact opposite."

Then it's just as fake as the ones with heads on both sides.

If your talking about the faces, then there is only one head, George Washington, but if you are talking about the sides, there are two. Heads and Tails

Your question is slightly vague, so I will pose a more defined question: What is the probability of 3 coin tosses resulting in heads exactly twice? This is a pretty easy question to answer. The three possible (winning) outcomes are: 1. Heads, Heads, Tails. 2. Heads, Tails, Heads. 3. Tails, Heads, Heads. If we look at the possible combination of other (losing) outcomes, we can easily determine the probability: 4. Heads, Heads, Heads. 5. Tails, Tails, Heads. 6. Tails, Heads, Tails. 7. Heads, Tails, Tails. 8. Tails, Tails, Tails. This means that to throw heads twice in 3 flips, we have a 3 in 8 chance. This is because there are 3 winning possibilities out of a total of 8 winning and losing possibilities.

heads and tails The technical terms are obverse (front) and reverse (back)

50/50. There are two sides (heads and tails), so half of the time it will land on heads. 49.5% or something like that because the coin can land on heads, tails, or on its edge. but the likelihood is like a fraction of a percent, but it is possible

There are two answers to this question. If it can only land on heads or tails up, then there is a 50% chance ( or half a chance) it will land heads up, but that's not necessarily true. But, if it can land on heads, tails, or sides, then there is a 16% chance it will land tails up.

The probability of heads is 0.5 or 1/2. This is wrong, the chances of a penny landing heads up is less than 0.5 because the cast in Lincoln's head weighs more than the tails side of the peeny.

The probability is 0%. The result will be heads or it will be tails but it cannot be heads and tails.

Two ways to think about it: 1: 25% both heads 50% one of each 25% both tails -or- 2: 25% heads/heads 25% heads/tails 25% tails/heads 25% tails/tails

Heads have a person on it. Tails have something else on it.

No. If you flip a penny (or any other standard coin) a lot of times, on average you'll get heads half the time and tails half the time so neither side is luckier than the other.

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.
