# Coin Toss Probability Calculator

The coin toss probability refers to the probability of getting exactly 'h' number of heads/tails in the 'N' number of a coin toss. A coin toss is an independent event getting heads/tails in one trial does not affect the outcome of other trials.

## What is a Coin Toss Probability Calculator?

'Coin Toss Probability Calculator' is an online tool that helps to calculate the probability of getting exactly 'h' number of heads/tails in the 'N' number of a coin toss. Online coin toss probability calculator assists you to calculate the probability in a few seconds.

NOTE: Enter the values only up to two digits.

## How to Use Coin Toss Probability Calculator?

Please follow the below steps to find the coin toss probability:

**Step 1:**Enter the number of desired heads and the number of a coin toss in the given input boxes.**Step 2:**Click on the**"Calculate"**button to find the probability.**Step 3:**Click on the**"Reset"**button to clear the fields and enter the different values.

## How to Find a Coin Toss Probability?

As the outcomes of a coin toss are independent so, the total number of outcomes will be equal to the total number of trials times the number of possible outcomes in a single trial i.e. 2, and the number of favorable outcomes will be equal to the number of possible favorable combinations.

**Coin Toss Probability = ^{n}C_{h}/2^{n}**

Here n is the total number of trials and h is the number of heads in the n number of trials.

**Solved Example:**

What will be the probability of getting 4 heads in 6 coin tosses?

**Solution:**

Number of trials (n) = 6

Total possible outcomes = 2^{n} = 2^{6} = 64

Number of heads (h) = 4

Total number of favourable outcomes = ^{6}C_{4} = 15

Now probability = 15/64 = 0.234
