What is the probability of of tossing heads on the first 6 tosses of a fair coin?

The probability of tossing heads on all of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 0.56, or 0.015625. The probability of tossing heads on at least one of the first six tosses of a fair coin is 1 - 0.56, or 0.984375.


What is the probability of tossing heads then heads and then tails when tossing a coin 3 times?

3 out of 6


Two coins are tossed 50 times how many times do you expect to get two heads?

This is a binomial probability distribution The probability of exactly 2 heads in 50 coin tosses of a fair coin is 1.08801856E-12. If you want to solve this for how many times 50 coin tosses it would take to equal 1 time for it to occur, take the reciprocal, which yields you would have to make 9.191019648E11 tosses of 50 times to get exactly 2 heads (this number is 919,101,964,800 or 919 billion times). If you assume 5 min for 50 tosses and 24 hr/day tossing the coin, it would take 8,743,360 years. That is the statistical analysis. As an engineer, looking at the above analysis, I would say it is almost impossible flipping the coin 50 times to get exactly 2 heads or I would not expect 2 heads on 50 coin tosses. So, to answer your question specifically, I would say none.

What is the probability of tossing heads on the first 4 tosses of a fair coin?

1/16


What is the probability of tossing four coins and getting four heads if the first two tosses are heads?

The conditional probability is 1/4.


When tossing a fair coin the probability of getting three heads in a row is?

In a large enough number of tosses, it is a certainty (probability = 1). In only the first three tosses, it is (0.5)3 = 0.125


What is the probability of getting 6 heads in tossing 6 coins in 6 tosses?

The probability of tossing 6 heads in 6 dice is 1 in 26, or 1 in 64, or 0.015625. THe probability of doing that at least once in six trials, then, is 6 in 26, or 6 in 64, or 3 in 32, or 0.09375.


What is the probability of tossing heads then heads and then tails when tossing a coin 3 times?

3 out of 6


What is the probability of getting 2 heads on all 3 tosses?

The probability is 0, since there will be some 3-tosses in which you get 0, 1 or 3 heads. So not all 3-tosses will give 2 heads.


What is the probabiltiy that a coin will land on heads in six tosses?

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


What is the probability that a coin will turn up heads twice in 6 tosses of the coin?

Every time a coin is tossed there is a 50 / 50 chances of it coming up heads. There is no rule that says tossing it 100 or 6 times will change this.


What are the possible outcomes for 2 tosses of a coin?

Heads+Heads ; Heads+Tails ; Tails+Tails


You are tossing three coins and want to determine the probability for getting at least one head?

Pr(At least one head in three tosses) = 1 - Pr(No heads in three tosses) = 1 - Pr(Three tails in three tosses) = 1 - (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) = 1 - 1/8 = 7/8 or 0.875 or 87.5%


What do you have one in a million chances of experiencing?

20 tosses of a fair coin, each one resulting in heads. This is not the same as a string of 20 consecutive heads in a longer sequence of tosses.
