The probability of getting 3 or more heads in a row, one or more times is 520/1024 = 0.508

Of these,

the probability of getting exactly 3 heads in a row, exactly once is 244/1024 = 0.238

About a 1 in 16 chance of getting a coin to land on heads 4 times in a row.

The probability of flipping a fair coin four times and getting four heads is 1 in 16, or 0.0625. That is simply the probability of one head (0.5) raised to the power of 4.

You still still have a 1:2 chance of getting heads regardless of the times you flip.

The opposite of getting at most two heads is getting three heads. The probability of getting three heads is (1/2)^2, which is 1/8. The probability of getting at most two heads is then 1 - 1/8 which is 7/8.

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

There are two sides to the coin, so the probability of getting heads or tails on one flip of the coin is 1/2 or 50%.

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.

If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.If it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/4.

Since a coin has two sides and it was tossed 5 times, there are 32 possible combinations of results. The probability of getting heads three times in 5 tries is 10/32. This is 5/16.

The mathematical probability of getting heads is 0.5. 70 heads out of 100 tosses represents a probability of 0.7 which is 40% larger.

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

The probability is 25%. The probability of flipping a coin once and getting heads is 50%. In your example, you get heads twice -- over the course of 2 flips. So there are two 50% probabilities that you need to combine to get the probability for getting two heads in two flips. So turn 50% into a decimal --&gt; 0.5 Multiply the two 50% probabilities together --&gt; 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25. Therefore, 0.25 or 25% is the probability of flipping a coin twice and getting heads both times.

The probability is 0.5 regardless how many times you toss the coin."

Answer this Question : Probability of getting 10 heads in a row is(1/2)^10 = 1/1024 = 0.000976 or 0.098 %

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.

If a coin is flipped 4 times, the probability of getting 3 heads is: 4C3 (1/2)^3 (1/2)^1 = 4(1/8)(1/2) = 4/16 = 1/4

If the coin is fair, the probability of getting all heads will decrease exponentially towards 0.
