There are 8 possible outcomes when a coin is tossed 3 times. Here they are:1. Heads, Heads, Tails.2. Heads, Tails, Heads.3. Tails, Heads, Heads.4. Heads, Heads, Heads.5. Tails, Tails, Heads.6. Tails, Heads, Tails.7. Heads, Tails, Tails.8. Tails, Tails, Tails.There is only one outcome that is heads, heads, heads, so the probability of three heads coming up in three coin tosses is 1 in 8 or 0.125 for that probability.

It is 0.3125

P(Heads) = 2/3

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%.

It is 60/100 = 0.6

The probability is 5/16.

Since each event is independent, the probability remains at 0.5.

The outcomes are: heads, tails, tails or tails, heads, tails or tails, tails, heads. You can see that there are 3 possible outcomes with exactly 1 head.

Pr(3 Heads) = 0.125 Pr(2 Heads and 1 Tail) = 0.375 Pr(1 Head and 2 Tails) = 0.375 Pr(3 Tails) = 0.125
