# If you flip a coin 3 times what is the probability of getting at least 2 heads?

Probability is defined as how likely an event is to occur.

## Answer: If you flip a coin 3 times, the probability of getting at least 2 heads is 1/2.

Let's look into the possible outcomes.

**Explanation:**

Sample space: {HHH, HTH,THH,TTH, HHT, HTT,THT,TTT}

Total number of possible outcomes=8

Probability of getting at least two heads is:

P(A)=P(getting two heads)+P(getting 3 heads)

= 3/8 + 1/8

= 4/8 = 1/2

### Therefore, the probability of getting at least 2 heads if you flip a coin 3 times is 1/2.
