The probability of tossing heads on all of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 0.56, or 0.015625.

The probability of tossing heads on at least one of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 1 - 0.56, or 0.984375.

In a large enough number of tosses, it is a certainty (probability = 1). In only the first three tosses, it is (0.5)3 = 0.125

The probability of tossing 6 heads in 6 dice is 1 in 26, or 1 in 64, or 0.015625. THe probability of doing that at least once in six trials, then, is 6 in 26, or 6 in 64, or 3 in 32, or 0.09375.

The probability is 0, since there will be some 3-tosses in which you get 0, 1 or 3 heads. So not all 3-tosses will give 2 heads.

The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5

The probability that a coin will land on heads - at least once - in six tosses is 0.9844

The probability is 0.09766%.Each toss has a &frac12; chance to be heads. To combine probabilities use multiply them. So the probability to get two heads out of two tosses is &frac12; * &frac12;, and three heads out of three tosses is &frac12; * &frac12; * &frac12;. So the exact answer is 0.5^10

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.

Coin tosses are what we call Independent Events, meaning that the results of one toss have no effect on the next toss or any thereafter. Therefore the probability of each toss is 1/2. If, however, you want to know the probability of tossing two coins, and each coin landing heads-up, you simply multiply their probabilities together, resulting in 1/4.

Every time a coin is tossed there is a 50 / 50 chances of it coming up heads. There is no rule that says tossing it 100 or 6 times will change this.

The probability would be once in 128 attempts. You don't have to toss seven coins simultaneously. the 7 tosses just have to be independent of one another.

The number of total outcomes on 3 tosses for a coin is 2 3, or 8. Since only 1 outcome is H, H, H, the probability of heads on three consecutive tosses of a coin is 1/8.

The mathematical probability of getting heads is 0.5. 70 heads out of 100 tosses represents a probability of 0.7 which is 40% larger.

If you toss a coin often enough the probability is 1. The probability of 9 H in the first 9 tosses is (1/2)9 = 1/512

1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 1/2= probability of landing an even number 1/2 = probability of landing a heads

The experimental probability of a coin landing on heads is 7/ 12. if the coin landed on tails 30 timefind the number of tosses?
