What is the probability of getting heads more than once if you flip a coin three times?

For 3 coin flips: 87% chance of getting heads at least once 25% chance of getting heads twice 13% chance of getting heads all three times

Arnold flipped a coin twice and it landed heads up both times If he flips the coin again What is the probability the coin will land heads up?

The correct answer is 1/2. The first two flips do not affect the likelihood that the third flip will be heads (that is, the coin has no "memory" of the previous flips). If you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads each time, the probability of heads on the 101st try would still be 1/2. (Although, if you flipped it 100 times and it came up heads all 100 times - the odds of which are 2^100, or roughly 1 in 1,267,650,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - you should begin to wonder about whether it's a fair coin!). If you were instead asking "What is the probability of flipping a coin three times and having it land on "heads" all three times, then the answer is 1/8.

What is the probabity of obtaining three heads?

On a fair 50-50 coin, the chance of you getting heads 3 times in a row is .5 * .5 * .5 which is 12.5% Getting exactly 3 heads out of any number of coin flips involves: (Number of Flips!/ [6 * (N-3)!]) * (.5^3)* (.5^(n-3))

Flip a coin 25 times and out of the 25 times the coin landed on heads 14 times what percent of the flips landed on heads?

What is the probability of flipping NO heads when you flip 3 identical coins?
