# What is the probability of tossing a coin and getting an even number?

789

Zero. Since coins land on Heads or Tails and not numbers.

## Related Questions The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5 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. The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 &asymp; 3.13%  1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 1/2= probability of landing an even number 1/2 = probability of landing a heads on one coin, the probability of getting a head is 0.5, if there is no bias    The probability of tossing two coins that are different is 1 in 2, or 0.5.The probability of tossing something on the first coin is 1. The probability of not matching that on the second coin is 0.5. Multiply 1 and 0.5 together, and you get 0.5. The probability of tossing an odd number (assumed on a die) is 3 in 6 or 1 in 2. The probability of tossing a tail (assumed on a coin) is 1 in 2. Since these are unrelated events, and the question said "and", simply multiply the probabilities to get 1 in 4. Assuming a two-sided coin, and that you make the the toss, the probability of tossing a head or a tail is 100%. The probability of tossing a head is 50%. The probability of tossing a tail is 50%.   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 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.  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%.  The probability of tossing a coin 9 times and getting at least one tail is: P(9 times, at least 1 tail) = 1 - P(9 heads) = 1 - (0.50)9 = 0.9980... &asymp; 99.8% The probability of tossing a coin twice and getting tails both times is 1 in 4, or 25%. If you have already tossed a coin and had it land on tails, the probability that it will land on tails again the next time you toss it is 50%. 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. Because a coin is two-sided, 50/50 is always the probability. Unless your coin lands on the grass (on the lawn), then it will probably land on its edge.  There are 23 or 8 possibilities; one is HHH. So, probability of HHH is 1/8 or 0.125.
