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

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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 is 1. I have flipped a coin a lot more than 7 times.

Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 %

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.

The odds of flipping a coin and having it come up heads three times in a row is (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2)=(1/8) or 12.5% &#9632;

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

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.

1/2 of a chance since there are two sides to any coins it is always a half chance.

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%

The probability of flipping 91 coins and getting a head 91 times in a row is 1/291 or (1/2)91 or 4.039E-28. The (1/2)91 is when there is exactly 91 coin tosses or n = 91. As the number of trials increases so does the probability of at least 1 run of length 91. The average number of coin flips to see 91 in a row is 4.951760157141521e+27

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

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%

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.)

The probability of drawing the first ace is 4 in 52. The probability of getting the second ace is 3 in 51. The probability of getting the third ace is 2 in 50. The probability, then, of drawing three aces is (4 in 52) times (3 in 51) times (2 in 50), which is 24 in 132600, or 1 in 5525, or about 0.0001810

The chance of not flipping a head in each instance is 1/2. You need that to happen three times. 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8 So there is a 1 in 8 chance of getting no heads from 3 coin flips.
