The probability of Tails on the first toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the second toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the third toss is 0.5 .The probability of Tails on the fourth toss is 0.5 .The probability of all four is (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = 0.0625 = 6.25%

total outcome in single toss={H,T} u want 1 head probability of getting 1 head= 1/2=0.5

1/2. What the previous tosses are has no impact on what a fourth toss of a coin is, so the chance of getting a tails is the same on any throw.

you toss 3 coins what is the probability that you get exactly 2 heads given that you get at least one head?

you have one twelfth chance

The probability of Tails on the first toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the second toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the third toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the fourth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the fifth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the sixth toss is 1/2.The probability of Tails on the seventh toss is 1/2.The probability of all of them is (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = (0.5)7 = 0.0078125= 0.78125 %

one out of four

If you toss them enough times, the probability is 1. For just one toss the probability is 1/4.

If it is a fair coin, the probability is exactly 50%. The coin has no memory of what it did in the last flip. ■

It is 0.00540 approx.
