The sample space when flipping a coin is [heads, tails].

fraction for flipping one coin one time = 1/2

The probability of flipping Heads on a coin is 1 - a certainty - if the coin is flipped often enough. On a single toss of a fair coin the probability is 1/2.

For a normal coin, it is 0.5.

There are 8 permutations of flipping a coin 3 times, or of flipping 3 coins one time. They are, with the permutations of two heads bolded...TTTTTHTHTTHHHTTHTHHHTHHH... thus, the probability of flipping a coin 3 times and getting 2 heads is 3 in 8, or 0.375.

1 heads in a row

88 hours

These are random, assuming fair dice or fair coin.

The probability of throwing exactly 2 heads in three flips of a coin is 3 in 8, or 0.375. There are 8 outcomes of flipping a coin 3 times, HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, and TTT. Of those outcomes, 3 contain two heads, so the answer is 3 in 8.

Heads - ½ Tails - ½ There are two reasonable outcomes of flipping a coin. You could get heads or tails. Some might argue that the third outcome is that the coin will land on the edge.
