You are tossing a coin and throwing a die What is the probability of tossing head or tail and throwing a number greater than 4?

Firstly, the probability when tossing a coin and getting a head or tail is 1/2, then rolling a die, there are 6 sides so the chance of rolling any number is 1/6, there are 2 chances of rolling greater than 4 ie 5 and 6, so the probability of rolling a 5 or 6 in 1/3, as these are independent events you multiply the probability getting a heads of tails, (1/2) by the probability of rolling a five or six, (1/3) which gives you 1/6 or 0.1666 recurring.


If two events are mutually exclusive what is the probability that both occur at the same time?

The probability is 0. Consider the event of tossing a coin . The possible events are occurrence of head and tail. they are mutually exclusive events. Hence the probability of getting both the head and tail in a single trial is 0.

the probability of getting one head and one tail on three flips of a coin is 1/9


What is the probability of getting a even number and a head when rolling a die and then tossing a coin?

A die has six sides, so the probability of rolling an even number is 1 in 2, or 50-50. A coin has two sides, so the probability of flipping the coin and getting heads is 1 in 2, or 50-50. The probability that both will happen together is the one in two OF one in two, or one in FOUR chance that both will happen. So, the probability is 25%.




What is the probability of rolling an odd number and a head when rolling a die and then tossing a coin?

The probability of a head is 1/2. The probability of an odd number is 1/2. 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 or 0.25


In football the referee tosses a coin to determine which team will kick off and which will receive What is the probability that a team will win the toss?

In tossing a coin, there are two outcomes; head or tail. Since there are two outcomes, probability of each outcome is: 0.5. Assuming a fair coin, probability of a head or tail is: 0.5. So, probability a team will win a toss is: 0.5.


What is the probability of getting an even number and a head when rolling a die and then tossing a coin?

These are unrelated events, so simply multiply them. 3 in 6, or 0.5 for the die, and 1 in 2, or 0.5 for the coin, multiplied together gives you 0.25.

What is the probability of tossing a single coin and getting 2 heads before you get 3 tails?

5 independent events, each of them with a probability of 1/2; you need to multiply all together, so you get (1/2) to the power 5.Note: any other specific combination you can get when throwing a coin 5 times - for example, head, tails, head, tails, head - will have the same probability.


What is the probability of getting a head if coin is tossed 5 times?

The probability of getting a head on each occasion if a coin is tossed five times is equal to 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 (that is, 1/25) = 1/32 or one in thirty-two. The probability of getting a head on the fifth toss is 1/2. All other tosses are independent of the fifth toss. The probability of getting at least one head when tossing the coin 5 times: Since there are 32 possible combinations and only one of those combinations is all tails you could expect to toss a combination with a head 31/32 times. The probability is 0.96875.



What is the probability of rolling a number less than 5 and a head when rolling a die and then tossing a coin?

The probability of rolling a number less than 5; which is a 4, 3, 2, or 1 is 4/6 or 2/3. The probability of tossing a head is 1/2. So, the probability of a roll less than 5 and a head is 2/3*1/2 or 1/3 or 0.333. 4/12


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 one in sixteen chance of that run, the probability of the entire sequence is therefore one in thirty-two.
