Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You multiply the percentages together. What's the chance of getting a head on a coin flip?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So they all have a 50% chance of being heads. Now multiply the percentages together. It might be easier to write it as \(\large \frac{1}{2}\) when you multiply them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the probability of ONE coin being heads is 50% however, we have FOUR coins here, so we must multiply 50% 4 times (0.5)*(0.5)*(0.5)*(0.5) does that make a little more sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, so our final answer is 6.25%
