It is 0.5

because there are only 2 sides. It can land on one of those 2 sides.

There are two sides on a coin. The odds are 50:100, or 1:2. Half the time the coin SHOULD land on heads.

The probability that the coin will land on heads each time is 1/2. (1/2) to the tenth power is 1/1024. This is the probability that the coin will not land on heads. Subtract it from one to get the probability that it will : 1-(1/1024)There is a 1023/1024 or about 99.90234% chance that the coin will land on heads at least once.(There is a 1/1024 chance that the coin will land on heads all four times.)

The probability of a fair coin to land head is 1/2. Since for 4 flips it must land heads each time, the probability of 4 heads is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/16.

The probability that a coin will land on heads - at least once - in six tosses is 0.9844

Since it is a certainty that a coin must land on either heads or tails, the probability must be 1.
