How many different outcomes are possible when you toss eight coins?

If you toss eight coins, there are 256 (28) different outcomes.

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

There are technically 8 possible outcomes if you are talking about the side of the coin it lands on. Each coin has 2 possible outcomes (landing on heads and landing on tails). To figure out the number of outcomes for all the coins you multiply the outcomes for all of the coins together: 2 X 2 X 2= 8.

How many possible outcomes are there when you toss a coin and spin the pointer on a spinner with 6 colors?

There are 12 possible outcomes.

How many possible outcomes are there if you toss a coin 3 times?

2x2x2=8 possible outcomes. In general for n tosses there are 2^n outcomes.

If you toss a coin four times how many possible outcomes are there?

24 or 16

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.

A coin is tossed 2 times what are the number of possible outcomes?

What is a pascal's triangle used for?

It is used for lots of things such as finding out the total possible outcomes of tossing coins. You find the line that corresponds with how many coins you toss and add all the numbers in that line to get the number of possible outcomes also you can use it to find combinations and permutations and triangular numbers

How many outcomes are there for one toss of the octohedron and one toss of the dodecahedron?

There are 96 possible outcomes. A dodecahedron has 12 sides, so it has 12 possible outcomes. An octohedron has 8 sides. So for each of the 12 outcomes on the dodecahedron, the octahedron has 8 possible outcomes, hence you multiply 12 x 8 = 96.

How many possible outcomes are there when you roll two number cubes and toss one coin?
