The probability of getting a heads on the first flip is 1/2. Similarly, the probability on each subsequent flip is 1/2, since they are independent events. The probability of several independent events happening together is the product of their individual probabilities.

As a coin has two sides, the odds are always 50-50.

one fourth

It is 1/2.

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.

The probability of flipping three heads when flipping three coins is 1 in 8, or 0.125. It does not matter if the coins are flipped sequentially or simultaneously, because they are independent events.

The answer depends on how many coins are flipped, and how often.

The probabilty of you flipping 3 coins and getting all heads or tails is 0.125 or 1/8.

0.54 or 0.0625 or 1/16.

The probability of the first coin landing heads is half (or 1/2). Similarly, the probability of the second and third coins landing heads are also 1/2 in each case. Therefore, the probability of having three heads is: (1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = (1/8)

Well, you have 24 possibilities, and you can get heads 6 ways, so it is 1/4.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.
