If you toss a penny a nickel and a quarter and a dime how many possible outcomes?

Each coin has two possible outcomes, either Heads or Tails. Then the number of outcomes when all 4 coins are tossed is, 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16.

Whats the probability of getting at most one heads when two fair coins are tossed?

When two fair coins are tossed, you have the following possible outcomes: HH, HT, TH, TT. So, at most implies that you get either i) zero heads or ii) one head. From the possible outcomes we see that 3 times we satisify the outcome. Thus, probability of at most one head is 3/4.
