**What is the probability of 1 head?**

In counting the number of heads in 4 coin flips, the probability that we get exactly one head is the probability that we get anyone of the following 4 outcomes: HTTT, THTT, TTHT, or TTTH. Each has probability 1/16, so the probability to get exactly one head in 4 flips is 1/16 + 1/16 + 1/16 + 1/16 = 4/16 = 1/4.

### What is the expected number of heads in 5 tosses?

**What is the probability of getting 1 or 2 heads?**

For example, the probability of two heads is 1/2 · 1/2 = 1/4, and the probability of two tails is the same. Since there are two leaves corresponding to one head and one tail, each of probability 1/4, the probability of this event is 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2.

**Is it possible to get a probability of 1 for head in a coin toss?**

For example, the probability of an outcome of heads on the toss of a fair coin is ½ or 0.5. The probability of an event can also be expressed as a percentage (e.g., an outcome of heads on the toss of a fair coin is 50% likely) or as odds (e.g., the odds of heads on the toss of a fair coin is 1:1).

### What is the probability of winning the toss in five consecutive hockey matches?
