Im not sure what u are asking the probability of getting 2 sixes on both dice is1/36 the probability of getting a six on either dice is 1/6 and the probability of getting one six on both of the dice is 5/36 i believe hope i answered ur question

The probability of tossing a coin twice and getting tails both times is 1 in 4, or 25%. If you have already tossed a coin and had it land on tails, the probability that it will land on tails again the next time you toss it is 50%.

One in four. 1:4. The probability of getting heads when a fair coin is tossed is: P(H) = 1/2. The probability of getting heads on a second toss is: P(H) = 1/2, this result is independent of the result of the first toss. The probability of having both events happen (heads on the first and heads on the second toss) is: P(H1UH2) = (1/2)∙(1/2) = 1/4 = 0.25 = 0.25%

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 answer depends on how many times the coin is tossed. The probability is zero if the coin is tossed only once! Making some assumptions and rewording your question as "If I toss a fair coin twice, what is the probability it comes up heads both times" then the probability of it being heads on any given toss is 0.5, and the probability of it being heads on both tosses is 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25. If you toss it three times and want to know what the probability of it being heads exactly twice is, then the calculation is more complicated, but it comes out to 0.375.

0.5 in each case. The probability of both happening simultaneously is 1/4

1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4
