### What is the probability of getting tails 4 times in a row when you flip a coin?

The probability of each coin flip, independently, is 0.5 or 50%. The probability of getting one result (either heads or tails) four times in a row is 0.5 to the fourth power or 0.0625, which equals 6.25%

### What is the probability of getting exactly 2 tails of tossing a coin?

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.

### What is the probability of getting both tails on two tosses of a coin?

The probability of two tails on two tosses of a coin is 0.52, or 0.25.

### A coin is tossed 4 times. What is the probability of getting tails 4 times in a row?

The probability to get tails once is 1/2 (for a fair coin) The probability to get tails twice = the probability to get it once x the probability to get it a second time The probability to get tails 4 times in a row is (1/2)4=1/16 The probability to get tails n times in a row is (1/2)n=1/2n The same thing is also true for heads (same probability: 1/2 each time)

### If a coin is tossed two times what is the probability of getting tails two times in a row?

25% or 0.25 Probability of one tail is 0.50. Since two tails are independent events, the probability is 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25

The probability of getting all heads if you flip a coin three times is: P(HHH) = 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 = 1/8. The probability of getting all tails if you flip a coin three times is: P(TTT) = 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 &#8729; 1/2 = 1/8. The probability of getting all heads or all tails if you flip a coin three times is: P(HHH or TTT) = P(HHH) + P(TTT) = 2/8 = 1/4.

### What is the probability of getting heads on the one flip of coin?

There are two sides to the coin, so the probability of getting heads or tails on one flip of the coin is 1/2 or 50%.

### What is a probability of getting a two tails in first two chances if coin is tossed 10 times simultaneously?
