The probability of getting 3 is virtually 1. It is 1.76 septillionths less than 1. The probability of getting 3 or more heads in a row, one or more times is 520/1024 = 0.508 Of these, the probability of getting exactly 3 heads in a row, exactly once is 244/1024 = 0.238 The probability of getting an even number on at least one of the 3 rolls is 7/8.  Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 % The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 &asymp; 3.13% The probability of getting an even sum on two dice is 18 in 36 or 1 in 2 or 0.5. The probability of doing that three times in a row is 0.53 or 0.125. The probability of getting 11 with one throw of 2 dice is 1/6*1/6*2 = 1/18 So the probability of not getting 11 with 1 throw of the dice is 17/18. Tossing the dice 54 times, the probability of not getting 11 54 times is (17/18)54 = 0.0456... So the probability of at least 1 roll of 11 is 1 - 0.0456 = 0.954 100 times its probability.100 times its probability.100 times its probability.100 times its probability. The probability of each coin flip, independently, is 0.5 or 50%. The probability of getting one result (either heads or tails) four times in a row is 0.5 to the fourth power or 0.0625, which equals 6.25% The probability of flipping a fair coin four times and getting four heads is 1 in 16, or 0.0625. That is simply the probability of one head (0.5) raised to the power of 4. The probability of drawing the first ace is 4 in 52. The probability of getting the second ace is 3 in 51. The probability of getting the third ace is 2 in 50. The probability, then, of drawing three aces is (4 in 52) times (3 in 51) times (2 in 50), which is 24 in 132600, or 1 in 5525, or about 0.0001810   The probability of getting any outcome is 100%.The probability of a specific outcome depends on the description of that outcome.Some outcomes are more probable. Some are less probable. The opposite of getting at most two heads is getting three heads. The probability of getting three heads is (1/2)^2, which is 1/8. The probability of getting at most two heads is then 1 - 1/8 which is 7/8. The probability of getting exactly seven tails if you flip a coin eight times is: P(7T1H) = 8&#8729;(1/2)8 =0.03125 &asymp; 3.1% If you rolled a die 120 times, the probability of getting a 6 is one in six. It does not matter how many times you roll the die - the probability is still one in six - except that the long term mean will approach the theoretical value of 0.166... as the number of trials increases.
