In three tosses, the probability is 3/8.
Because you are thinking permutations rather than combinations. There are four permutations of two coins, but there are only three combinations, because it does not matter which coin is heads and which coin is tails. As a result, the combination of heads and tails has a 0.5 probability, while two heads or two tails each have a 0.25 probability.
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%.
The probability of getting all heads is 1/24 = 1/16 The probability of getting all tails is also 1/24 = 1/16 The probability of all heads or all tails is the sum of the two = 1/8
lets get some facts odds of head on 1 coin 50% or evens odds of no head 50% or evens the possible results vary from 1 coin to 2 coins. 1 coin has 2 results heads or tails 2 coins have 4 results. heads heads, tails tails, tails heads, heads tails. each outcome has a probability of 25%. for the question we remove the heads and tail probability and we have 2 outcomes with heads and one without. so 2 to 1 chance or 33.3333 recuring chance.
50% probablility, or 1/2, that is, a one in two chance.There is an equal chance that the coin will land either heads or tails.
three heads two head, one tails one heads, two tails three tails
1 in two but they say the side with heads is slightly Heavier.
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 one in sixteen chance of that run, the probability of the entire sequence is therefore one in thirty-two.
two events are mutually exclusive if they cannot occur at the same time. The classic example is a coin toss where you have either heads or tails, but there is NO WAY to have heads and tails at the same time. Heads and tails are mutually exclusive.
If it's a fair coin, the probability is 0.5 * 0.5 * 0.5 = 12.5%.
Any time there are two options, heads or tails when you flip a coin for example, the probability is 1/2, that the result will be either one option, or the other. The expected result when the coin lands is a 1/2 probability that it will be heads, and a 1/2 probability that it will be tails. What "1 out of 2 failing" means is that for every two students that take an exam, for example, one of them will fail. Of course, it also means, that 1/2 will pass.
The prob is 0.375
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.
Two ways to think about it: 1: 25% both heads 50% one of each 25% both tails -or- 2: 25% heads/heads 25% heads/tails 25% tails/heads 25% tails/tails
The flip of a fair coin is 0.5 heads and tails, so you want the probability of head & head. This probability of garlic, garlic two consecutive tosses is 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25.
This is correct. For example the probability of tossing a coin so that it comes up heads is 1/2 and the probability that it comes up tails is also 1/2. The probability that it will come up either heads or tails is 1.
50/50. There are two sides (heads and tails), so half of the time it will land on heads. 49.5% or something like that because the coin can land on heads, tails, or on its edge. but the likelihood is like a fraction of a percent, but it is possible
The probability of two tails on two tosses of a coin is 0.52, or 0.25.
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
Phospholipids have one hydrophilic head and two hydrophobic tails
It has one hyrdophilic head and two hydrophobic tails.
If you toss them enough times, the probability is 1. For just one toss the probability is 1/4.
