1/16

These are four independent events each with a 1/2 probability. The probability that all four occur (penny and nickels heads and dime and quarter tails) is: 1/2*1/2*1/2*1/2=(1/2)4=1/16.

What are 3 probabilities of getting heads when you flip a quarter?

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.


What is probability of getting all heads if 3 coins are tossed simultaneously?

There is a probability of 0.5 of heads on each coin, so there is a 1/2 * 1/2 *1/2 = 1/8 = 0.125 chance that all coins land heads. You can also express this as a percentage, 12.5% chance. The odds are 1 in 8 that this can happen.


What are all the possible outcomes for flipping or tossing three coins a dime a nickel and a penny in an organized manner and how would a tree diagram show these results?

There are eight possible results when flipping three coins (eliminating the highly unlikely scenario of one or more coins landing on their edge): Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Heads / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Heads Dime - Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Tails / Nickel - Tails / Penny - Tails


What is the probability that a coin lands on its heads and tails?

The probability of the coin flip being heads or tails is 100%.


When tossing 5 coins simultaneously find the probability that at least 1 head is showing.?

This is easiest to solve by working out the probability that no heads show and subtracting this from 1 to give the probability that at least one head shows: Assuming unbiased coins which won't land and stay on their edge, the probability of head = probability of tail = ½ → probability no heads = probability 5 tails = ½^5 = 1/32 → probability of at least one head = 1 - 1/32 = 31/32 = 0.96875 = 96.875 % = 96 7/8 %

Tiree tossed a coin 100 times and got 70 heads. how does her probability compare to the mathematical probability?

The mathematical probability of getting heads is 0.5. 70 heads out of 100 tosses represents a probability of 0.7 which is 40% larger.


Two coins are tossed What is the probability of both coins are heads?

The probability that both coins are heads is the probability of one coin landing heads multiplied by the probability of the second coin landing heads: (.5) * (.5) = .25 or (1/2) * (1/2) = 1/4


What is the probability of tossing seven coins at one time and having 7 of them come up heads?

The probability would be once in 128 attempts. You don't have to toss seven coins simultaneously. the 7 tosses just have to be independent of one another.


What is the probability of getting 2 heads when 2 coins are tossed?

The probability of tossing two heads in two coins is 0.25.


What is the probability that a coin that is tossed 10 times what is the probability of it landing on heads 10 times?

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


What is the probabality of flipping three heads when flipping three coins one after another?

The probability of flipping three heads when flipping three coins is 1 in 8, or 0.125. It does not matter if the coins are flipped sequentially or simultaneously, because they are independent events.


A fair nickel and a fair dice are tossed once outcomes match when both coins land on heads or both coins land on tails What is the theoretical probability of a match?

The probability of 2 coins both landing on heads or both landing on tails is 1/2 because there are 4 possible outcomes. Head, head. Head, tails. Tails, tails. Tails, heads. Tails, heads is different from heads, tails for reasons I am unsure of.


What is the probability of tossing four coins and getting four heads if the first two tosses are heads?

The conditional probability is 1/4.


If you flip a coin 5 times what is the probability it comes up heads on the 3rd flip?

The probability of 'heads' on any flip is 50% .


What is probability of tossing five heads from five coins?

the probability is 0.03125 or 3.123%


Seven coins are tossed What is the probability of 3 heads or 2 tails?

The probability of one event or the other occurring is the probability of one plus the probability of the other. The probability of getting 3 heads is the probability of 3 heads (1/23) multiplied by the probability of 4 tails (1/24) multiplied by the number of possible ways this could happen. This is 7c3 or 35. Thus the probability of 3 heads is 0.2734375. The probability of 2 tails is the probability of 2 tails (1/22) multiplied by the probability of 5 heads (1/25) multiplied by the number of ways this could happen. That is 7c5 or 21. Thus the probability of 2 tails is 0.1640625 The probability of one or the other is the sum of their probabilities: 0.1640625 + 0.2734375 = 0.4375 Thus the probability of getting 3 heads or 2 tails is 0.4375.
