Best Answer

Probability is defined as the number of ways an outcome can occur divided by the number of possible outcomes. For the coins, there are 4 outcomes (HH, HT, TH, TT). On the cube, there are 6 possible outcomes. The total number of outcomes is then 4*6 = 24. Since there is only 1 way to obtain HH, look at the cube outcomes. With the HH outcome, the cube would need to fall on a 4. So, there is only 1 way a HH4 can occur. Therefore the probability of getting 2 heads and a four is 1/24 or 0.04167.

The probability is 1/16.

is it 50% or 100% dang, i just confused myself. what if you toss 3 coins all at the same time... what's the probability of getting a head then, is it > 100% ? Doh!

Coins do not have numbers, there is only the probability of heads or tails.

1/4 if they are tossed only once.
