A fair coin would be expected to land on heads 10 times on average.

The probability that the coin will land on heads each time is 1/2. (1/2) to the tenth power is 1/1024. This is the probability that the coin will not land on heads. Subtract it from one to get the probability that it will : 1-(1/1024)There is a 1023/1024 or about 99.90234% chance that the coin will land on heads at least once.(There is a 1/1024 chance that the coin will land on heads all four times.)

The probability that the coin lands on the heads ones: 1/2Two times (1/2)^2 = 1/4Five times (1/2)^5 = 1/32 (so 1 in 32 attempts)n times (1/2)^n

It could land on heads any number of times between zero and 150.The most probable result, if the coin is honest and balanced, is 75 times.

About a 1 in 16 chance of getting a coin to land on heads 4 times in a row.

An event is an outcome or set of outcomes of an experiment. For example, if you want a coin to land on heads when you are flipping it, and it DOES land on heads, THAT is the event. If it lands on tails, that outcome is the complement

There is a 50% chance that it will land on heads each toss. You need to clarify the question: do you mean what is the probability that it will land on heads at least once, exactly once, all five times?

For each toss, the probability that it'll land heads up is 1/2 So 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/8, or .125 There is a 12.5% chance that it will land heads-up all 3 times.

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

the probability is actually not quite even. It would actually land heads 495 out of 1000 times because the heads side is slightly heavier

There are two sides on a coin. The odds are 50:100, or 1:2. Half the time the coin SHOULD land on heads.

The probability that a coin will land on heads - at least once - in six tosses is 0.9844

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.

No, when you toss a coin there is a 50 percent chance it will land heads up.

There are two answers to this question. If it can only land on heads or tails up, then there is a 50% chance ( or half a chance) it will land heads up, but that's not necessarily true. But, if it can land on heads, tails, or sides, then there is a 16% chance it will land tails up.

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

The law of numbers is based on the actual outcome of any given event when randomness is eliminated. The law of numbers simply put, states that the result will always be the result. It is different than the outdated concepts of averages or probability because it is not a guess. A good example is flipping a coin. Probability is 50/50 that the coin will land on heads or tails. If the coin is flipped 10 times, users of averages or probability will say that the coin will land on heads 5 times and tails 5 times. After flipping the coin 10 times it landed on heads 6 times and tails 4 times. The law of numbers states the coin will land on heads 6 times and on tails 4 times.The law of numbers goes into physics and psychology and is based on the idea that nothing is random. The results of flipping a coin are based on the way the coin was held, the amount of force applied to the coin, the height the coin was above the ground, and the environmental factors surrounding the coin as it turns through the air. If all factors are identical, the result will be identical. The coin will land on heads 10 out of 10 times. These factors are not easily controlled and were dismissed as random or probability. The law of numbers corrects for these factors.

There is a fifty percent chance of the coin landing on "heads" each time it is flipped.However, flipping a coin 20 times virtually guarantees that it will land on "heads" at least once in that twenty times. (99.9999046325684 percent chance)You can see this by considering two coin flips. Here are the possibilities:Heads, heads.Heads, tails.Tails, tails.Tails, heads.You will note in the tossing of the coin twice that while each flip is fifty/fifty, that for the two flip series, there are three ways that it has heads come up at least once, and only one way in which heads does not come up.In other words, while it is a fifty percent chance for heads each time, it is a seventy five percent chance of seeing it be heads once if you are flipping twice.If you wish to know the odds of it not being heads in a twenty time flip, you would multiply .5 times .5 times .5...twenty times total. Or .5 to the twentieth power.That works out to a 99.9999046325684 percent chance of it coming up heads at least once in the twenty times of it being flipped.

assuming it's the coin that can land on "heads" and not Brad, also assuming that the coin is perfectly uniformly dense and has a uniform shape and the thing the coin lands on is perfectly still (probably not Brad's head), and has a constant coefficient of friction for wherever the coin touches it, and a constant air friction coefficient, I would say 3/8. or we can accept the fact that there are two sides to a coin, the probability of one side landing up is 1/2, if rolled 3 times, probablility = 3 * .5 *.5 *.5 just perform an experiment

means that the effect will occur at least 95% of the time... for example, if you toss a coin 20 times and get heads 19 times, you could say that the bias of the coin to land on heads is significant, since 19/20 = 95%
