# If you flip a coin 3 times, what is the probability of getting 3 heads?

Answer: 1/8

## Probability

The probability of getting a head in one flip is 1/2. Since the flips are independent events, the probability of getting 3 heads in a row is (1/2) x (1/2) x (1/2) = 1/8.

## FAQ on Probability

### What is the probability of getting 2 heads and 1 tail in any order?

The probability is 3/8.

### How do you compute the probability of independent events?

Multiply the probabilities of each event.

### How do you compute the probability of dependent events?

Multiply the probability of the first event by the conditional probability of the second event, given the first has occurred.
