    I know the probability of a coin landing on heads is 1/2 the same for tails

    and I know every time you add a coin the chance that there will only be one heads halves

    They might be the same region but even in the same region you can get very different answers like when using sin cos and tan

    |dw:1360002853031:dw| The diagram shows the outcomes of tossing 1 coin, 2 coins and 3 coins. There are 2 outcomes for 1 coin, 4 outcomes for 2 coins and 8 outcomes for 3 coins. Can you make the correct choice of expression now?

    Try substituting in each of the choices for 3 coins and see which gives the correct number of possible outcomes. For example choice B: x + x = 3 + 3 = 6 Therefore choice B is incorrect.

    @bookaholic Have you tried another substitution?
