Math 1160 - Copeland 2 Section 5.6 – More Counting Problems Coin Tossing (total outcomes) Suppose that an experiment consists of tossing a coin 8 times and observing the sequence of heads and tails. A. How many different outcomes are possible? Heads or tails (denotes number of outcomes per operation) 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 256 Each flip (8) of the coin denotes an operation. Think about the multiplication principle.
