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

The probability of getting at least 1 tails is (1 - probability of getting all heads) The probability of getting all heads (no tails) is ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ = 1/256 = 0.00390625 so the probability of getting at least ONE tails is 1-0.30390625 = 0.99609375 = 255/256

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.

Since each event is independent, the probability remains at 0.5.

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%.

one out of 5 or 2 out of 10

Assuming it is a fair coin, the probability is 1/24 = 1/16.

The probability for that is (1/2)4 = 1/16.

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

Tossing tails: 1 in 2 or 1/2 Rolling a 2: 1 in 6 or 1/6

The probability of getting only one tails is (1/2)7. With seven permutations of which flip is the tails, this gives a probability of: P(six heads in seven flips) = 7*(1/2)7 = 7/128

well it depends on what you are tossing, if its a coin then no. it can be heads too. it would have to be a great coincidence for it to be all tails, but thats why the word probability comes in meaning that there is more than one outcome

There are 2^5 (2*2*2*2*2), or 32, possible outcomes of tossing a coin 5 times. Only one of those outcomes does not contain any tails. This leaves us with 31/32, or 97% chance of at least one toss coming up tails.

1/2 chance of getting heads or tails 5 times 1/10

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%

The probability of getting a six on a six sided die and then getting a tails is zero. There is no tails on a die.

That depends how many times you flip the coin.

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.

3 coins can land in 8 different ways. Only one of these ways is all tails. So the probability of rolling at least one heads is 7/8 = 87.5% .

The possibility is always fifty percent.

Probability not at least 1 head showing is when all 5 coins are tails: (1/2)5=1/32 Therefore probability at least 1 head is showing is 1-1/32=31/32

This is one of those cases where it is probably easier to think what is the probability of not doing it, then subtracting that from 1 to get the probability of doing it. To not get at least one head and one tail, you would have to get all heads or all tails. To get all heads, the probability is (1/2)5. To get all tails is the same probability; so double it to get the probability of either of those. 2(1/2)5=1/16. Subtract the 1/16 from 1 to get 15/16. Answer: 15/16

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.

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