2 heads and 2 tails

No there is a fifty fifty chance of getting heads or tails

no

None, since that would imply that in 18 cases the coin did not show heads or tails!

When h=head, t=tails First toss: heads/tails (1h/1t) Second toss: heads/tails (2h/1h1t*2/2t) Third toss: heads/tails (3h/2h1t*3/1h2t*3/3t) Fourth toss: heads/tails (4h/3h1t*4/2h2t*6/1h3t*4/4t) In short, 1+4+6+4+1=16 Chances of getting 2 heads and 2 tails = 6/16 * 100% = 37.5%

No there is a fifty fifty chance of getting heads or tails

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

no

The probability of getting all heads is 1/24 = 1/16 The probability of getting all tails is also 1/24 = 1/16 The probability of all heads or all tails is the sum of the two = 1/8

If you mean what is the probability of getting a heads/tails, it is a 1 in 2 chance (50/50 chance). You are just as likely to get a heads as you are to get a tails.

There are 8 possible outcomes when a coin is tossed 3 times. Here they are:1. Heads, Heads, Tails.2. Heads, Tails, Heads.3. Tails, Heads, Heads.4. Heads, Heads, Heads.5. Tails, Tails, Heads.6. Tails, Heads, Tails.7. Heads, Tails, Tails.8. Tails, Tails, Tails.There is only one outcome that is heads, heads, heads, so the probability of three heads coming up in three coin tosses is 1 in 8 or 0.125 for that probability.

Heads+Heads ; Heads+Tails ; Tails+Tails

None, since that would imply that in 18 cases the coin did not show heads or tails!

the only combination which does not produce heads at least once it tails twice. the odds of getting tails twice is 0.5*0.5=0.25 so the odds for getting heads at least once is 1-0.25=0.75 or 75% or 3/4.

Your question is slightly vague, so I will pose a more defined question: What is the probability of 3 coin tosses resulting in heads exactly twice? This is a pretty easy question to answer. The three possible (winning) outcomes are: 1. Heads, Heads, Tails. 2. Heads, Tails, Heads. 3. Tails, Heads, Heads. If we look at the possible combination of other (losing) outcomes, we can easily determine the probability: 4. Heads, Heads, Heads. 5. Tails, Tails, Heads. 6. Tails, Heads, Tails. 7. Heads, Tails, Tails. 8. Tails, Tails, Tails. This means that to throw heads twice in 3 flips, we have a 3 in 8 chance. This is because there are 3 winning possibilities out of a total of 8 winning and losing possibilities.
