# What is the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting all heads?

We will use the concept of probability to find the required answer.

## Answer: The probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting all heads is 1/8.

Let's see how we can apply the knowledge of probability to find the answer.

**Explanation:**

Let's say a coin is tossed once.

The probability of getting a head or a tail = 1/2

Hence, let's consider 3 coins to be tossed as independent events.

So, by multiplication theory of probability, probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting all heads = (1/2 × 1/2 × 1/2 ) = 1/8.

### Thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting all heads is 1/8.
