50% probablility, or 1/2, that is, a one in two chance.

There is an equal chance that the coin will land either heads or tails.

The probability of tossing a coin twice and getting tails both times is 1 in 4, or 25%. If you have already tossed a coin and had it land on tails, the probability that it will land on tails again the next time you toss it is 50%.

Since it is a certainty that a coin must land on either heads or tails, the probability must be 1.

The probability of the coin flip being heads or tails is 100%.

Each time you flip a coin, the probability of getting either heads or tails is 50%.

The probability of two tails on two tosses of a coin is 0.52, or 0.25.

The probability of getting two tails when tossing a coin is zero, because the coin can only have one result. If, one the other hand, you toss the coin twice, then the probability of getting two tails is 0.25, i.e. the probability of one tail, 0.5, squared.

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

Zero. Since coins land on Heads or Tails and not numbers.

Because a coin is two-sided, 50/50 is always the probability. Unless your coin lands on the grass (on the lawn), then it will probably land on its edge.

The probability to tossing a coin and obtaining tails is 0.5. Rolling a die has nothing to do with this outcome - it is unrelated.

Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 %

The probability to get tails once is 1/2 (for a fair coin) The probability to get tails twice = the probability to get it once x the probability to get it a second time The probability to get tails 4 times in a row is (1/2)4=1/16 The probability to get tails n times in a row is (1/2)n=1/2n The same thing is also true for heads (same probability: 1/2 each time)

The probability of Tails on the first toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the second toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the third toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the fourth toss is 0.5 .The probability of all four is (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = 0.0625 = 6.25%

Coins do not have numbers, there is only the probability of heads or tails.

The experimental probability of a coin landing on heads is 7/ 12. if the coin landed on tails 30 timefind the number of tosses?

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

If you mean what is the probability of getting a heads/tails, it is a 1 in 2 chance (50/50 chance). You are just as likely to get a heads as you are to get a tails.

The probability of a fair coin landing on heads or tails is even, i.e. 50/50.

probability of tails on a coin is 1/2 probablility of 6 on a die is 1/6

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.

The probability of a fair coin landing on tails is 0.5. The probability of 4 tails is .5*5*.5*.5 = 0.0625.
