The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5

The probability is 0.998

1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 1/2= probability of landing an even number 1/2 = probability of landing a heads

on one coin, the probability of getting a head is 0.5, if there is no bias

The probability of tossing a coin 5 times and getting all tails is:P(TTTTT) = (1/2)5 = 0.03125 ≈ 3.13%

The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5

50% chance.

The probability of getting two tails when tossing a coin is zero, because the coin can only have one result. If, one the other hand, you toss the coin twice, then the probability of getting two tails is 0.25, i.e. the probability of one tail, 0.5, squared.

It is 3/8.

3/8. And the coin tossing is totally irrelevant.

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

one out of 5 or 2 out of 10

In a large enough number of tosses, it is a certainty (probability = 1). In only the first three tosses, it is (0.5)3 = 0.125
