The probability of heads is 0.5 each time.

The probability of four times is (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = 0.0625 = 1/16 = 6.25% .

If it is a fir coin, the probability is (1/2)10 = 1/1024.

The probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 3 heads is 1/2

1/8. The probability of flipping a coin three times and it landing on head is 1/2, as a coin only has two sides. You flip a coin three times, therefore the answer is (1/2)^3 = 1/8.

Experimental probability is calculated by taking the data produced from a performed experiment and calculating probability from that data. An example would be flipping a coin. The theoretical probability of landing on heads is 50%, .5 or 1/2, as is the theoretical probability of landing on tails. If during an experiment, however, a coin is flipped 100 times and lands on heads 60 times and tails 40 times, the experimental probability for this experiment for landing on heads is 60%, .6 or 6/10. The experimental probability of landing on tails would be 40%, .4, or 6/10.

What is the chance of it landing on heads twice in a row?

The probability is 6 in 12, or 1 in 2.

There are 8 permutations of flipping a coin 3 times, or of flipping 3 coins one time. They are, with the permutations of two heads bolded...TTTTTHTHTTHHHTTHTHHHTHHH... thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 2 heads is 3 in 8, or 0.375.

The best way to think about this is the following way: What is the probability of flipping heads once? 1/2 What is the probability of flipping heads twice? 1/4 (1/2 * 1/2) Using this we can derive the equation to find the probability of flipping heads any number of times. 1/2n Using this we plug in 25 for n and get 1/225 or as a decimal 2.98023224 x 10-8 or as odds 1:33,554,432

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

Mathematical probability is how many times something is projected to occur, where as experimental probability is how many times it actually occurred. For example, when discussing the probability of a coin landing heads side up... Mathematical probability is 1:2. However, if you actually carryout an experiment flipping the coin 5 times the Experimental probability may be 2:5

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

Simple question, difficult answer. It depends on how many times you want the penny to land on heads. The probability of a penny landing on heads once is 1 in 2. For it to land on heads twice is 1 in 4, for three times it is 1 in 8, and so on and so forth.

Theoretical is 50% Heads, 50% tails: 30-Heads, 30-Tails (theoretical)

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 --> 0.5 Multiply the two 50% probabilities together --> 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 0.09766%.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

50/50 50/50? This is equal to 1 which would imply the probability of flipping a head is certain. Obviously not correct as the probability of flipping a head in a fair dice is 1/2 or 0.5

Experimental Probability: The number of times the outcome occurs compared to the total number of trials. example: number of favorable outcomes over total number of trials. Amelynn is flipping a coin. She finished the task one time, then did it again. Here are her results: heads: three times and tails: seven times. What is the experimental probability of the coin landing on heads? Answer: 3/10 Explanation: Amelynn flipped the coin a total of 10 times, getting heads 3 times. Therefore, the answer is: 3/10.

The probability of landing on heads at least once is 1 - (1/2)100 = 1 - 7.9*10-31 which is extremely close to 1: that is, the event is virtually a certainty.

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.

The probability of throwing exactly 2 heads in three flips of a coin is 3 in 8, or 0.375. There are 8 outcomes of flipping a coin 3 times, HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, and TTT. Of those outcomes, 3 contain two heads, so the answer is 3 in 8.

None, since that would imply that in 18 cases the coin did not show heads or tails!

Every time you flip a coin it has a 50% chance of heads and a 50% chance of tails. Flipping a coin multiple times does not change that. Therefore the answer is 50%
