It is certainly possible.

The probability is 1/4.

What is the probability of of tossing heads on the first 6 tosses of a fair coin?

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.



When tossing a fair coin the probability of getting three heads in a row is?

In a large enough number of tosses, it is a certainty (probability = 1). In only the first three tosses, it is (0.5)3 = 0.125


What is the probability of getting 6 heads in tossing 6 coins in 6 tosses?

The probability of tossing 6 heads in 6 dice is 1 in 26, or 1 in 64, or 0.015625. THe probability of doing that at least once in six trials, then, is 6 in 26, or 6 in 64, or 3 in 32, or 0.09375.


What is the probability of getting 2 heads on all 3 tosses?

The probability is 0, since there will be some 3-tosses in which you get 0, 1 or 3 heads. So not all 3-tosses will give 2 heads.


What is the probability that a coin will turn up heads twice in 6 tosses of the coin?

Every time a coin is tossed there is a 50 / 50 chances of it coming up heads. There is no rule that says tossing it 100 or 6 times will change this.


What is the probabiltiy that a coin will land on heads in six tosses?

The probability that a coin will land on heads - at least once - in six tosses is 0.9844


What are the possible outcomes for 2 tosses of a coin?

Heads+Heads ; Heads+Tails ; Tails+Tails


You are tossing three coins and want to determine the probability for getting at least one head?

Pr(At least one head in three tosses) = 1 - Pr(No heads in three tosses) = 1 - Pr(Three tails in three tosses) = 1 - (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) = 1 - 1/8 = 7/8 or 0.875 or 87.5%


What is the frequency for heads in a series of 100 tosses of a fair coin?

The theoretical frequency of heads will be .5 and as you do more and more coin tosses the observed frequency should get closer and closer to .5. With 100 tosses, it will be pretty close, but not exactly .5


What do you have one in a million chances of experiencing?

20 tosses of a fair coin, each one resulting in heads. This is not the same as a string of 20 consecutive heads in a longer sequence of tosses.


What is a probability of tossing exactly two heads?

Coin tosses are what we call Independent Events, meaning that the results of one toss have no effect on the next toss or any thereafter. Therefore the probability of each toss is 1/2. If, however, you want to know the probability of tossing two coins, and each coin landing heads-up, you simply multiply their probabilities together, resulting in 1/4.


What is the probability of tossing a coin and getting a head?

The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5


Two coins are tossed 50 times how many times do you expect to get two heads?

This is a binomial probability distribution The probability of exactly 2 heads in 50 coin tosses of a fair coin is 1.08801856E-12. If you want to solve this for how many times 50 coin tosses it would take to equal 1 time for it to occur, take the reciprocal, which yields you would have to make 9.191019648E11 tosses of 50 times to get exactly 2 heads (this number is 919,101,964,800 or 919 billion times). If you assume 5 min for 50 tosses and 24 hr/day tossing the coin, it would take 8,743,360 years. That is the statistical analysis. As an engineer, looking at the above analysis, I would say it is almost impossible flipping the coin 50 times to get exactly 2 heads or I would not expect 2 heads on 50 coin tosses. So, to answer your question specifically, I would say none.

What is the probability of getting tails if a coin is tossed 4 times?

If you look at the as the probability of getting 1 or more tail in 4 coin tosses, you would then calculate the probability of tossing 4 heads in a row and subracting that from 1. The probability fo tossing 4 heads is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/16. 1 - 1/16 = 15/16.


Find the probability of heads on three consecutive tosses of a coin?

The number of total outcomes on 3 tosses for a coin is 2 3, or 8. Since only 1 outcome is H, H, H, the probability of heads on three consecutive tosses of a coin is 1/8.


What is the probability of tossing seven coins at one time and having 7 of them come up heads?

The probability would be once in 128 attempts. You don't have to toss seven coins simultaneously. the 7 tosses just have to be independent of one another.


In tossing 10 coins the probability of getting exactly 5 heads is?

252/1024 or 0.246. One method of calculating it is this: The total number of outcomes possible by tossing a coin 10 times is 2 to the 10th, which is 1024. In addition, getting 5 heads in 10 tosses is like arranging 5 identical objects in 10 spaces (the remaining 5 spaces are by default Tails), which can be done in 10C5 ways, which is 252. So the probability of getting 5 heads is 252/1024.


What is the probability that a coin that is tossed 10 times what is the probability of it landing on heads 10 times?

The probability is 0.09766%.Each toss has a ½ chance to be heads. To combine probabilities use multiply them. So the probability to get two heads out of two tosses is ½ * ½, and three heads out of three tosses is ½ * ½ * ½. So the exact answer is 0.5^10


What is the probability of getting heads on all 2 tosses if a fair coin is tossed 5 times?

With 5 coin tosses there are 32 possible outcomes. 10 of these have exactly 2 heads, and 26 of these have 2 or more heads.For exactly two coins are heads: 10/32 = 31.25%For two or more heads: 26/32 = 81.25%


A coin is tossed 5 times find the probability that the 6th toss is a tail given tht the first 5 tosses were all tails?

The chance is 50%-50% that it will be heads or tails; this does not change regardless of the number of previous tosses and their results.



What is the probability of one heads and two tails?

In three tosses, the probability is 3/8.


How many times would a coin have to show heads in 50 tosses to show an experimental probability of 20 percent more than the theoretical probability of getting heads?

Theoretical probability = 0.5 Experimental probability = 20% more = 0.6 In 50 tosses, that would imply 30 heads.
