Yes, it can.
Probability is the likelihood that some particular event will occur. It is expressed as a number between 0 and 1, where 0 means the event will not occur, and 1 means the event will occur. Values in between 0 and 1 indicate the relative likelihood, i.e. "probability", that the event will occur. For instance, the probability of tossing heads on a fair coin toss is 0.5, the probability of rolling a 3 on a standard die is 1 in 6, or about 0.1667, and the probability of drawing an ace of spades from a standard deck of 52 cards is 1 in 52 or about 0.01923.
rolling a die,or tossing a coin!
A compound event, in probability theory is an event which is made up of two (or more) simpler events. Thus, tossing two coins in a compound event made up of tossing one coin and tossing another coin. Getting soaked in rain consists of the simple events that it rains (where you are) and you are outdoors without an umbrella (at that time).
The sample space of tossing a coin is H and T.
Probability is the likelihood that something will occur. If you subtract it from 1, we get the likelihood (or probability) that it will not occur. If a coin is tossed and rolls heads 6 times, the (empirical) probability of obtaining a head is 6/10 or .6. 1-.6 =.4 is the empirical probability (or likelihood) of not getting a head.
The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5
The sample space for tossing a coin twice is [HH, HT, TH, TT].
3/8. And the coin tossing is totally irrelevant.
Since each event is independent, the probability remains at 0.5.
