A nickle, dime, and quarter are tossed.
What is the probability that the nickel and dime will show heads and the quarter will show tails? $\displaystyle \frac {1}{8}$
What is the probability that only one of the coins will show tails? $\displaystyle \frac {3}{8}$
Make a table and count the possiblites.
Hey its easy identify all the possibilties fo all the coins.
YUU WILL GET
HHH HHT THH HTT TTT HTH THT TTH
WHERE H= HEADS N T= TAILS...
you can see there's only 1 possibility out of 8 that the first two will show tails n d last one a head n the probablity that only 1 coin show tails is 3/8
