# 2-a coin is tossed three times, then what is the probability of tossing three heads in succession?

one in eight =

When we are looking at events that are independent (where the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of any later events), the probability of a sequence of events happening in a certain manner is calculated by multiplying the probability of each individual together:

P(event1 and event2 and event 3 etc.) = P(event1) x P(event2) x P(event3) x etc.

The probability of tossing a head with a fair coin is 1/2. Since each toss is independent, the probability of tossing three heads in succession is (1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2), which equals 1/8.
