Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could also recognize, P(at least 1 head) = 1  P(no heads) = 1  P( 2 tails) = 1  1/2 x 1/2 = 11/4 = 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What lokisan is doing is finding the probability that you will get tails twice, (which would be multiplying one half by one half), then subtracting that from one, which would get the probability that you wouldn't get tails twice, which is the same thing as getting heads at least once.
