The sample space is HH, HT, TH, HH. Since the HH combination can occur once out of four times, the probability that if a coin is flipped twice the probability that both will be heads is 1/4 or 0.25.

7/8

The experimental probability of a coin landing on heads is 7/ 12. if the coin landed on tails 30 timefind the number of tosses?

The probability of landing on heads each time a fair coin is flipped, is 1/2.Assuming that the question was supposed to be:"What is the probability of landing on heads twice in a row?"To calculate compound probabilities like this, we first have to work out the probability of landing on heads each time, and then multiply these two probabilities to get a compound probability.1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4So the probability of landing on heads twice in a row = 1/4 (for a fair coin)

The probability of flipping three heads when flipping three coins is 1 in 8, or 0.125. It does not matter if the coins are flipped sequentially or simultaneously, because they are independent events.

Multiply the probability by the number of times the experiment was carried out. 0.6x10=6

The probability is always 50/50 even if you flipped 100 or 1000000 coins.

25%

Fifty percent (50%)

The answer depends on how many coins are flipped, and how often.

The probability that 2 flipped coins both come up heads is 0.52 or 0.25

Experimental probability is calculated by taking the data produced from a performed experiment and calculating probability from that data. An example would be flipping a coin. The theoretical probability of landing on heads is 50%, .5 or 1/2, as is the theoretical probability of landing on tails. If during an experiment, however, a coin is flipped 100 times and lands on heads 60 times and tails 40 times, the experimental probability for this experiment for landing on heads is 60%, .6 or 6/10. The experimental probability of landing on tails would be 40%, .4, or 6/10.

The answer depends on what the experiment is!

The sample space is HH, HT, TH, HH. Since the HH combination can occur once out of four times, the probability that if a coin is flipped twice the probability that both will be heads is 1/4 or 0.25.

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

It is 1/2.

Probability of not 8 heads = 1- Prob of 8 heads. Prob of 8 heads = 0.5^8 = 0.003906 Prob of not 8 heads= 1- 0.003906 = 0.99604
