The 5 coin tosses are independent events. The outcome of each event does not influence any other events. Find the probability of each event and multiply them all together.

When you toss one coin, there are 2 possible outcomes. You are interested in one outcome. The probability of an outcome is: number of desired outcomes/total number of outcomes If you want a heads, your number of desired outcomes is 1 Since a coin can fall as heads or tails, there are two possible outcomes. The probability of getting heads is 1/2 which is the 1desired outcome divided by the 2 possible outcomes. Ok so far?

each coin has \(\dfrac{1}{2}\) of getting heads flipping 5 coins has a chance of \(\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{1}{2}\)

No. For each toss, the probability of heads is 1/2 Since all tosses are independent events, you multiply all their probabilities together: 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/32
