The empirical probability can only be determined by carrying out the experiment a very large number of times. Otherwise it would be the theoretical probability.

The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5

If you have tossed a fair, balanced coin 100 times and it has landed on HEADS 100 consecutive times, the probability of tossing HEADS on the next toss is 50%.

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.

If it is a fair coin, the probability is exactly 50%. The coin has no memory of what it did in the last flip. &#9632;

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

Probability of no heads = (0.5)^5 = 0.03125Probability of at least one head = 1 - probability of no heads = 1 - 0.03125 = 0.96875

The requirement that one coin is a head is superfluous and does not matter. The simplified question is "what is the probability of obtaining exactly six heads in seven flips of a coin?"... There are 128 permutations (27) of seven coins, or seven flips of one coin. Of these, there are seven permutations where there are exactly six heads, i.e. where there is only one tail. The probability, then, of tossing six heads in seven coin tosses is 7 in 128, or 0.0546875.

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 of tossing a coin and it landing on head is a 1 in 2 chance the probability of rolling a 5 on a dice is a 1 in 6 chance

The probability is 0.25.Look at it this way--if you toss a coin twice, there are four equally-probable outcomes:tails, tailstails, headsheads, tailsheads, headsSo the probability of heads twice in a row is one in four, or 25%.the chance of tossing heads is 1/2 (50%) The chance of tossing the next heads is 1/2 (50%) 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 (25%)

Heads or tails; each have a probability of 0.5 (assuming a fair coin).

on one coin, the probability of getting a head is 0.5, if there is no bias

The probability of something NOT happening is the complement of the probability of something happening. Since the probability that you DO have 3 heads is 1/8 (that is, 1/2 cubed), the complement is 1 - 1/8 = 7/8.

well it depends on what you are tossing, if its a coin then no. it can be heads too. it would have to be a great coincidence for it to be all tails, but thats why the word probability comes in meaning that there is more than one outcome
