The chance is 3.5/7.

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

The probability is 0.5 regardless how many times you toss the coin."

0.5, 1/2, 50% The probability for heads versus tails does not change based on the amount of times the coin is tossed. It will always be a 50% chance.

It is (1/2)9 = 1/512

the probability of getting heads-heads-heads if you toss a coin three times is 1 out of 9.

The answer depends on how many times the coin is tossed. The probability is zero if the coin is tossed only once! Making some assumptions and rewording your question as "If I toss a fair coin twice, what is the probability it comes up heads both times" then the probability of it being heads on any given toss is 0.5, and the probability of it being heads on both tosses is 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25. If you toss it three times and want to know what the probability of it being heads exactly twice is, then the calculation is more complicated, but it comes out to 0.375.

It is (1/2)9 = 1/512

The probability of 10 heads in a row is (0.5)10 = 0.000977 = 0.0977% .It makes no difference what has come before or what comes after.
