The possible outcomes of a coin that is flipped are heads or tails.

Heads or Tails

Number of possible outcomes with 4 coins = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16.Number of successes = 2. (Three heads or four heads)Probaility of success = 2/16 = 1/8 = 12.5 percent

The probability that 2 flipped coins both come up heads is 0.52 or 0.25

Multiply the probability by the number of times the experiment was carried out. 0.6x10=6

50% Every time you flip a coin, there is a 50% chance it will come up heads and a 50% chance it will come up tails, no matter how many times you have already flipped it, and no matter what the results were of previous flips.

As a group, I count four. 3 heads 3 tails 2 heads, 1 tail 2 tails, 1 head

(1/2)^3 = 1/8 In general it is like this (p/n)^t. Where n is the number of equally possible outcomes (2 since you can get heads or tails), p is the number of desired outcomes (1 since you only are concerned with heads), and t is the number of trials (3 in this case). One caveat to this is that it does not factor in initial conditions. Although very slight you have a better chance of getting heads when the coin is flipped from a position where heads is up. You have less chance of getting heads when the coin is flipped from the tails-up position. This effect is decreased the more the coin flips before landing.

50/50. There are two sides (heads and tails), so half of the time it will land on heads. 49.5% or something like that because the coin can land on heads, tails, or on its edge. but the likelihood is like a fraction of a percent, but it is possible

suppose you flipped a coin 100 times you might have flipped heads 50 time and tails 50 times

The probability is always 50/50 even if you flipped 100 or 1000000 coins.
