# If you flip a coin 3 times what is the probability of getting 1 heads?

**Solution:**

Given, a coin is tossed 3 times.

We have to find the probability of getting one head.

Probability = favourable outcomes/total number of outcomes.

The possible outcomes are

T H H

H T H

H H T

T T H

T H T

H T T

T T T

H H H

Total number of outcomes = 8

We observe that there is only one scenario in throwing all coins where there are no heads.

The number of cases in which we get exactly one head = 3

So, the probability to have one head = 3/8

= 0.375

Therefore, the probability of getting one head is 0.375

## If you flip a coin 3 times what is the probability of getting 1 heads?

**Summary:**

If you flip a coin 3 times, the probability of getting 1 head is 0.375.
