1 chance in 4

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

The sample space is HH, HT, TH, HH. Since the HH combination can occur once out of four times, the probability that if a coin is flipped twice the probability that both will be heads is 1/4 or 0.25.

Both heads and tails are equally likely.

75% The chance of not having a tails but a heads on both coins is (1/2)2 or 25%, so the chance of actually having a tails on either coin is 3/4, or as a percentage 75% .

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.

1/2

one fourth

Half the time they will be the same, half the time they will be different. Half of the time that they're the same they will be heads, half the time they are the same they will be tails. It's your homework, YOU figure it out. The way I figure it. There are four options: 1) heads / heads 2) heads / tails 3) tails / heads 4) tails / tails By process of chance, one out of four times both coins will be heads/heads. Therefore 780/4 = 195 times.

Two ways to think about it: 1: 25% both heads 50% one of each 25% both tails -or- 2: 25% heads/heads 25% heads/tails 25% tails/heads 25% tails/tails

1/4 you see if you flip two coins there's a better chance you'll get a head and a tail then any thing else. 2/4 you'll get a head and a tail, 1/4 you'll get two heads and 1/4 you'll get two tails.

If both tosses are fair, the probability of that outcome is one in four.
