If you have tossed a fair, balanced coin 100 times and it has landed on HEADS 100 consecutive times, the probability of tossing HEADS on the next toss is 50%.

The empirical probability can only be determined by carrying out the experiment a very large number of times. Otherwise it would be the theoretical probability.

It is 1/2.

1/2 chance of getting heads or tails 5 times 1/10

It is (1/2)3 = 1/8 or 0.125

The probability that a coin flipped four consecutive times will always land on heads is 1 in 16. Since the events are sequentially unrelated, take the probability of heads in 1 try, 0.5, and raise that to the power of 4... 1 in 24 = 1 in 16
