It is a mistake to assume that the probability of heads or tails falling out during a throw depends on previous results. Despite the last 108 throws, the likelihood of a head fall for a symmetrical coin will still be 0.5. But it is worth distinguishing the probability of a particular throw from the average likelihood of the throws. For example, the figure shows that for this simulation, the number of heads will be slightly higher than the tails. One can specify that the probability of several heads or tails falling out in a row can be determined by the formula where n denotes the number of repetitions.

# The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5 or 50%. Try this several times by hand, or use the GeoGebra Simulation. Imagine the simulation below, and that you were going to flip the coin just one more time. What is the probability you will get heads? What is the probability you will get tails?
