If three different coins are tossed together, then find the probability of getting two heads.

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

We know , Probability P ( E )  = Total number of desired events n ( E )Total number of events n ( S )

We know  when 3 coins are tossed simultaneously, the possible outcomes are HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, THT, HTT, TTH and TTT.
 Total number of possible outcomes = 8 , So

n ( S ) =  8

Here we can see that there three outcomes = HHT, HTH and THH  where we get " two " heads , So

n ( E ) =  3 


Probability of getting two heads = 38

Hope this information will clear your doubts about topic.
