# What are the odds of flipping 3 heads in a row? ### What are the odds of flipping 3 heads in a row?

The probability of getting 3 heads when you toss a "fair" coin three times is (as others have said) 1 in 8, or 12.5%. However, that isn't the question you asked. If you toss a coin exactly three times, there are 8 equally likely outcomes, and only one of them contains 3 consecutive heads. So the probability is 1 in 8.

### What is the probability of flipping 3 heads in a row with a dime?

Step-by-step explanation: Assuming the coin is fair (most coins are not completely fair) and that the person flipping is not able to control the tosses (some people can) then the chance is 0.125. On each flip, the chance is 1/2. The combination is simply the product of three tosses, since the events are independent.

### What is the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting heads 3 times?

0.13 is the probability of getting 3 Heads in 3 tosses.

### What is the probability of flipping tails three consecutive times?

18 Now we have to define event A of getting tails three times. So finally we can write the answer: Probability of getting 3 tails in 3 coin flips is 18 .

### What are the odds of flipping 2 heads in a row?

There is a 1/4 chance of getting two heads in a row when tossing a coin twice.

### What are the odds of flipping 10 heads in a row?

a 1/1024 chance Junho: According to probability, there is a 1/1024 chance of getting 10 consecutive heads (in a run of 10 flips in a row). However, this does not mean that it will be exactly that number. It might take one person less throws to get 10 consecutive heads.

### What are the odds of flipping 100 heads in a row?

This is an easy question to answer. The probability of flipping a fair coin and getting 100 Heads in a row is 1 in 2^100. That's 1 in 1,267,650,600,228,229,401,496,703,205,376.

### What are the chances of flipping 3 heads in a row?

If you are specifying one or the other, then 1/8. ie - the chance of flipping heads 3 times in a row is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/8. If either is fine, then the first toss is 1/1 since it can be either heads or tails, then the next two are 1/2 since they need to “match” the first, so the probability would be 1/4.

### What is the probability of a coin flip?

So, since the probability of one coin flip being Heads is 1/2 (assuming a fair coin), the probability of 3 coins being Heads is (1/2)^3 or 1/8. The probability of Tails is exactly the same. So, 1/8 + 1/8 = 2/8 or 1/4.

### What's the probability of getting 3 consecutive heads?

It is a crude image but it essentially explains the answer above very beautifully. At the beginning, we have no coins tossed so we have no consecutive heads. Next, we toss an H or T with probability 1 2. Thus, we go the next state 2 with probability 1 2, similarly with 3 and 4.

### What's the probability of getting 3 heads in a coin toss?

As you can count for yourself, there are 10 possible ways to get 3 heads. Thus, the probability of getting 3 heads from 5 coin flips is: 10/32, or 5/16.
