It is 0.5

1/2 or 50%

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

One out of every four flips

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

There is a 50% chance that it will land on heads each toss. You need to clarify the question: do you mean what is the probability that it will land on heads at least once, exactly once, all five times?

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%.

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 expected value is the number of tosses times the probability of tails, so: E(number of tails) = 52 * 1/2 = 52/2 = 26

It is 1/3
