Three coins are tossed once. Find the probability of getting

(i) 3 heads (ii) 2 heads (iii) at least 2 heads

(iv) at most 2 heads (v) no head (vi) 3 tails

(vii) exactly two tails (viii) no tail (ix) at most two tails.

When three coins are tossed once, the sample space is given by

S = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT}

∴Accordingly,
*n*(S) = 8

It is known that the probability of an event A is given by

(i) Let B be the event of the occurrence of 3 heads. Accordingly, B = {HHH}

∴P(B) =

(ii) Let C be the event of the occurrence of 2 heads. Accordingly, C = {HHT, HTH, THH}

∴P(C) =

(iii) Let D be the event of the occurrence of at least 2 heads.

Accordingly, D = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH}

∴P(D) =

(iv) Let E be the event of the occurrence of at most 2 heads.

Accordingly, E = {HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT}

∴P(E) =

(v) Let F be the event of the occurrence of no head.

Accordingly, F = {TTT}

∴P(F) =

(vi) Let G be the event of the occurrence of 3 tails.

Accordingly, G = {TTT}

∴P(G) =

(vii) Let H be the event of the occurrence of exactly 2 tails.

Accordingly, H = {HTT, THT, TTH}

∴P(H) =

(viii) Let I be the event of the occurrence of no tail.

Accordingly, I = {HHH}

∴P(I) =

(ix) Let J be the event of the occurrence of at most 2 tails.

Accordingly, I = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH}

∴P(J) =
