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.

There is the probability of 1/2 if it is a fair coin. There is the probability of 1 if it is a double-headed coin. There is the probability of 0 if it is a double-tailed coin.

As a coin has two sides, the odds are always 50-50.

The probability is 0.09766%.Each toss has a ½ chance to be heads. To combine probabilities use multiply them. So the probability to get two heads out of two tosses is ½ * ½, and three heads out of three tosses is ½ * ½ * ½. So the exact answer is 0.5^10

The probability that a coin will result in heads in any one toss is 1/2. If you toss the coin three times, the probability that the coin will turn up heads each time is 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 or 1/8, which is 12.5%.
