### What are the odds of being both stuck by lightning and hitting a hole in one in golf?

These are independent events, so the probability of both of them happening would be the probability of one multiplied by the probability of the other. According to insurance odds, the probability of an average golfer getting a hole in one in any given round is 1/3,125. The probability of being struck by lightning is 1/576,000. Thus the probability of both of these things happening is 1/(3,125 x 576,000) = 1/1,800,000,000 or one in 1.8 billion.

### What is the probability that certain genotypes and phenotypes will occur?

This depends entirely on the genotype of the parents. The probability of getting a specific genotype is the probability of getting the correct allele from mother (1/2) multiplied by the probability of getting the correct allele from father (1/2) multiplied by the number of ways this can occur. The probability of getting a phenotype, if the phenotype is dominant, is the sum of the probability of getting two dominant alleles, and the probability of getting… Read More

### If you were to flip a coin 4 times what is the probability of getting heads at least one time?

As the question is "what is the probability of getting at least one head" the correct way to answer this is to ask what is the probability of not getting any heads and then subtract this from 1. The probability of not getting a head in 4 flips = 0.54 (i.e. 0.5 * 0.5 * 0.5 * 0.5) = 1/16. Therefore the probability of getting at least one head is 1 - 1/16 = 15/16.

### What is the probability of getting a run of three consecutive heads before a run of two consecutive tails when tossing a fair coin over and over?

The probability of getting a head first time is one out of two, or a half. The probability of getting a head the next time is still one out of two, so the combined probability is one quarter. Similarly, one eighth is the probability of getting three in a row; but the pattern does not end there, the probability of getting a tails the next time is STILL one in two, so that is a… Read More

### How do probability work?

Probability are the odds of something happening but has multiple answers. Such as probability of getting a 5 in a fair dice would be 1 out of 6 because there are 6 numbers on a dice altogether, and ONE chance of getting a 5 from the total of 6. Therefore, the probability of getting a 5 or any number from a dice would be 1/6.
