fraction for flipping one coin one time = 1/2
The answer is 1/2 , assuming the coin is fair.
There are 8 permutations of flipping a coin 3 times, or of flipping 3 coins one time. They are, with the permutations of two heads bolded...TTTTTHTHTTHHHTTHTHHHTHHH... thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 2 heads is 3 in 8, or 0.375.

The sample space when tossing a coin three times is [HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT]It does not matter if you toss one coin three times or three coins one time. The outcome is the same.
Volleyball begins by flipping a coin. The coach's of the team pics one of the team players and they flip a coin who ever gets it right serves up first.
The coin can result in one of two possibilities. For each of those . . .The cube has 6 possibilities.Total possibilities for the coin and the cube = 2 x 6 = 12 .
Assuming that if you had 3 coins and they were all the same, then no, the outcomes would not be different than if you flipped the same coin 3 times. Flipping a coin has a 1/2 chance of landing on 1 face, and 1/2 chance that it will land on the other: -Flipping the same coin 3 times: 1/2 chance of the coin landing on one face -Flipping 3 coins one time each: Still 1/2 chance of each of the 3 coins landing on one face. These chance percentages are fairly vague. Of course there is an absolute minuscule percentage that the coin(s) could land on their side instead of either face or that one side could have a higher chance than the other, but the chances of that happening are so small there is no point complicating this answer and so extreme details like this are ignored.
Referring to coin flipping, heads and tails are not plurals. They are old genitives, and could be written head's and tail's.
If you flip a coin twice, there are four possible results:H HH TT HT T.The result you're interested in is one of the four possibilities.So its probability is 1/4 = 25% .
You cannot be sure. Not sure how the faces of a coin are similar to genes. There are two and you will get one from each parent. One or the other will dominate. However, while heads and tails of a coin are equally "powerful", some genes are far more powerful (recessive) than others.
The odds of flipping a coin and having it come up heads three times in a row is (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2)=(1/8) or 12.5% ■
The probability of flipping a coin 24 times and getting all heads is less than 1 in 16 million. (.524) It would seem that no one has ever done that.
