This is a probability question. Probabilities are calculated with this simple equation: Chances of Success / [Chances of Success + Chances of Failure (or Total Chances)] If I flip a coin, there is one chance that it will land on heads and one chance it will land on tails. If success = landing on heads, then: Chances of Success = 1 Chances of Failure = 1 Total Chances = 2 Thus the probability that a coin will land on heads on one flip is 1/2 = .5 = 50 percent. (Note that probability can never be higher than 100 percent. If you get greater than 100 you did the problem incorrectly) Your question is unclear whether you mean the probability that a coin will land on head on any of 8 flips or all of 8 flips. To calculate either you could write out all the possible outcomes of the flips (for example: heads-heads-tails-tails-heads-tails-heads-heads) but that would take forvever. Luckily, because the outcome of one coin flip does not affect the next flip you can calculate the total probability my multiplying the probabilities of each individual outcome. For example: Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = Prob. Flip 1 is Heads * Prob. Flip 2 is Heads * Prob. Flip 3 is Heads...and so on Since we know that the probability of getting heads on any one flips is .5: Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 (or .58) Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = .00391 or .391 percent. The probability that you will flip a heads on any of flips is similar, but instead of thinking about what is the possiblity of success, it is easier to approach it in another way. The is only one case where you will not a heads on any coin toss. That is if every outcome was tails. The probability of that occurring is the same as the probability of getting a heads on every toss because the probability of getting a heads or tails on any one toss is 50 percent. (If this does not make sense redo the problem above with tails instead of heads and see if your answer changes.) However this is the probability of FAILURE not success. This is where another probability formula comes into play: Probability of Success + Probability of Failure = 1 We know the probability of failure in this case is .00391 so: Probability of Success + .00391 = 1 Probability of Success = .9961 or 99.61 percent. Therefore, the probability of flipping a heads at least once during 8 coin flips is 99.61 percent. The probability of flipping a heads every time during 8 coin flips is .391 percent.

030 maybe but i say 35 or 31

yes the coin is biased because it turned to heads 36 times.

suppose you flipped a coin 100 times you might have flipped heads 50 time and tails 50 times

The possible outcomes of a coin that is flipped are heads or tails.

Roughly half of the time, so about 350 times.

Possibly not - the sample of 60 times is very small.

Heads or Tails

The correct answer is 1/2. The first two flips do not affect the likelihood that the third flip will be heads (that is, the coin has no "memory" of the previous flips). If you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads each time, the probability of heads on the 101st try would still be 1/2. (Although, if you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads all 100 times - the odds of which are 2^100, or roughly 1 in 1,267,650,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - you should begin to wonder about whether it's a fair coin!). If you were instead asking "What is the probability of flipping a coin three times and having it land on "heads" all three times, then the answer is 1/8.

Both heads and tails are equally likely.

A fair coin would be expected to land on heads 75 times.

30 times because it landed on heads 20 times, but he flipped the coin 50 times. 20+30=50.

The probability that a coin flipped four consecutive times will always land on heads is 1 in 16. Since the events are sequentially unrelated, take the probability of heads in 1 try, 0.5, and raise that to the power of 4... 1 in 24 = 1 in 16

They are HHT HTH and THH

The sample space is HH, HT, TH, HH. Since the HH combination can occur once out of four times, the probability that if a coin is flipped twice the probability that both will be heads is 1/4 or 0.25.

The probability of flipping a coin 24 times and getting all heads is less than 1 in 16 million. (.524) It would seem that no one has ever done that.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

Multiply the probability by the number of times the experiment was carried out. 0.6x10=6
