# What is the probability of getting any outcome when tossing a coin 4 times?

###### Wiki User

The probability of getting any outcome is 100%.

The probability of a specific outcome depends on the description of that outcome.

Some outcomes are more probable. Some are less probable.

The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 &asymp; 3.13%

Do you mean what are all the possible outcomes? Or what is the probability of a certain outcome? Need a little more information.

The probability of getting 3 is virtually 1. It is 1.76 septillionths less than 1.

The probability of tossing a coin 9 times and getting at least one tail is: P(9 times, at least 1 tail) = 1 - P(9 heads) = 1 - (0.50)9 = 0.9980... &asymp; 99.8%

There are 23 or 8 possibilities; one is HHH. So, probability of HHH is 1/8 or 0.125.

The probability of getting an even sum on two dice is 18 in 36 or 1 in 2 or 0.5. The probability of doing that three times in a row is 0.53 or 0.125.

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

Ideally, the probability of getting any specific combination of length n is 0.5n = 1/2n. For n = 3, this is 0.125 = 1/8.

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%.

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.

One hundred percent it you toss the coin eight times.

The probability of getting 11 with one throw of 2 dice is 1/6*1/6*2 = 1/18 So the probability of not getting 11 with 1 throw of the dice is 17/18. Tossing the dice 54 times, the probability of not getting 11 54 times is (17/18)54 = 0.0456... So the probability of at least 1 roll of 11 is 1 - 0.0456 = 0.954

If you continue tossing the coin forever, it is effectively a certainty. So probability = 1 If you toss it only 9 times, it is (1/2)9 = 1/512 = 0.00195 (approx)

Each time you toss the die the probability of rolling an even number is 3 out of 6 or 1/2. So, the probability of tossing three consecutive even numbers is (1/2)3 = 1/8 = 0.125, which is one chance in eight.

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.

Tossing a coin ten times is a [repeated] experiment or trial. It is neither empirical nor theoretical probability.

The empirical probability can only be determined by carrying out the experiment a very large number of times. Otherwise it would be the theoretical probability.
