1/8

3. anonymous

you would toss this 3 times and its heads or tails so 3 out of 6

4. steve816

no that is not right @mathhelp1199

i just did this about a month ago the number or favorable outcomes to number of total

6. steve816

it is $\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\times\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\times \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 8 }$

@mathhelp1199 you clearly have not learned probability yet. The chance of a penny landing on heads 3 times in a row is 1/8
