If we flip any coin three times here are all the possible outcomes.
$$\displaystyle \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&H&H\\ H&H&T\\ H&T&H\\ H&T&T\\ T&H&H\\ T&H&T\\ T&T&H\\ T&T&T \end{array}$$
Now YOU do some work. Answer each of the questions and post the results.
If you do not then do not expect any further help.

Thanks, and I am new here, I started posting before I even read the rules, but I am working on it and I will write back! #### williamrobertsuk

1. =0.125
2.=0.125
Now, the other two, I am still struggling, I thought it could be 0.25, but it ain't. Any help there?

3.=0.37
4.=0.5

Each sequence is equiprobable. But some sequences have the same total number of heads and tails as other sequences.
