Simulations of Coins

If you toss 3 coins, what is the probability that you will toss 1 heads and 2 tails?

  • Create a diagram showing the sample space.
  • Find the theoretical probability of the event.
  • Predict the results for 100 trials.
  • Perform 100 trials.
  • How do your expected results compare to your experimental results?
