The probability on the first flip is 50% .

The probability on the 2nd flip is 50% .

The probability on the 3rd flip is 50% .

The probability on the 4th flip is 50% .

The probability of 4 heads is (50% x 50% x 50% x 50%) = (0.5)4 = 1/16 = 6.25%

The probability of flipping a coin three times and getting two heads is?

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.


What is the probability of flipping a coin 4 times and getting 4 heads?

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


What is the probability of flipping a coin twice and getting two heads?

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.


A fair coin is flipped 4 times what is the probability of getting more than 3 heads?

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.


What is the probability of flipping a coin 20 times and getting 1 tails and 1 heads?

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


What is the probability of flipping 25 heads in a row?

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



While flipping a coin 100 times John gets 44 heads and 56 tails Enter the theoretical probability of getting a tail while flipping a perfectly balanced coin?

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%


What is the probibility of getting six heads when you flip a coin 7times?

The probability of getting 6 heads and 1 tail when flipping a fair coin 7 times is:7*(1/2)6*(1/2) = 7/128.


What is the probability of flipping 4 times and landing on heads each time?

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% .


What is the theoretical probability of flipping a coin 60 times?

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


What is Probability of Flipping a coin five times in a row and having it land on heads?

The probability of getting a heads on the first flip is 1/2. Similarly, the probability on each subsequent flip is 1/2, since they are independent events. The probability of several independent events happening together is the product of their individual probabilities.


What is the probability of flipping no heads when you flip three identical coins?

The probability of flipping one coin and getting tails is 1/2. In order to find the probability of multiple events occurring, you find the product of all the events. For 3 coins the probability of getting tails 3 times is 1/8 because .5 x .5 x .5 = .125 or 1/8.


What is the probability of flipping a coin 10 times and landing on heads each time?

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


What are the similarities between inductive and deductive statistics?

Inductive statistics is a branch of statistics for the purpose of making observations and predictions. Deductive statistics can be thought of as "pure statistics," which do not pertain to making observations or predictions.Ex:Deductive Statistics: Counting the number of combinations from flipping a coin 100 times. (Not helpful in determining the probability of getting heads.)Inductive Statistics: Flipping a coin 100 times. (Helpful in determining the probability of getting heads.)


When a coin is tossed three times what is the probability of getting at most two heads?

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.


If you flip a coin 100 times and heads show 40 times what are the odds for flipping head?

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


Has anyone ever flipped a coin 24 times and got all heads?

What is the probability is of getting 3 heads in a row if I toss the coin 10 times?

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


Probability to get exactly 2 heads when flipping a coin 3 times?

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.



What is the probability of getting one head when flipping a coin three times?
