# What is the empirical probability of tossing a coin 5 times and obtaining at least 3 consecutive heads?

The empirical probability can only be determined by carrying out the experiment a very large number of times. Otherwise it would be the theoretical probability.

Each time you toss the die the probability of rolling an even number is 3 out of 6 or 1/2. So, the probability of tossing three consecutive even numbers is (1/2)3 = 1/8 = 0.125, which is one chance in eight.

The probability of tossing a die and getting three 6's in a row is (1/6)3, or about 0.004630.

The probability of tossing an odd number (assumed on a die) is 3 in 6 or 1 in 2. The probability of tossing a tail (assumed on a coin) is 1 in 2. Since these are unrelated events, and the question said "and", simply multiply the probabilities to get 1 in 4.

The probability of tossing heads on all of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 0.56, or 0.015625. The probability of tossing heads on at least one of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 1 - 0.56, or 0.984375.

The probability of tossing a 1 or 2 on a six sided die is 2 in 6, or 1 in 3.

The probability of getting a head first time is one out of two, or a half. The probability of getting a head the next time is still one out of two, so the combined probability is one quarter. Similarly, one eighth is the probability of getting three in a row; but the pattern does not end there, the probability of getting a tails the next time is STILL one in two, so that is a one in sixteen chance of that run, the probability of the entire sequence is therefore one in thirty-two.

The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 &asymp; 3.13%
