The probability of flipping one coin and getting tails is 1/2. In order to find the probability of multiple events occurring, you find the product of all the events. For 3 coins the probability of getting tails 3 times is 1/8 because .5 x .5 x .5 = .125 or 1/8.

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

1/2 of a chance since there are two sides to any coins it is always a half chance.

P(tail) is 0.5. You want P(tail) AND P(tail) = 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25 or 1/4.

The probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 3 heads is 1/2

Every time you flip a coin it has a 50% chance of heads and a 50% chance of tails. Flipping a coin multiple times does not change that. Therefore the answer is 50%

1/2 of a chance since there are two sides to any coins it is always a half chance.

Theoretical is 50% Heads, 50% tails: 30-Heads, 30-Tails (theoretical)

There are 8 permutations of flipping a coin 3 times, or of flipping 3 coins one time. They are, with the permutations of two heads bolded...TTTTTHTHTTHHHTTHTHHHTHHH... thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 2 heads is 3 in 8, or 0.375.

Since the probability of getting tails is 50% or 0.5, the probability of three tails would be 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 or 12.5 %

P(tail) is 0.5. You want P(tail) AND P(tail) = 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25 or 1/4.

Since each event is independent, the probability remains at 0.5.
