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

For answering this question we need to consider all the possibilities when you flip a coin 3 times.

## Answer: If you flip a coin 3 times the probability of getting 3 heads is 0.125

When you flip a coin 3 times, then all the possibe 8 outcomes are HHH, THH, HTH, HHT, TTH, THT, HTT, TTT.

**Explanation:**

Possible outcomes are HHH, THH, HTH, HHT, TTH, THT, HTT, TTT.

The number of cases in which you get exactly 3 heads is just 1.

Thus, the probability of getting 3 heads = 1/8 = 0.125

### Hence, if you flip a coin 3 times the probability of getting 1 heads is 0.125
