## Probability question 6

**Question
**

If we toss a coin 10 times, are we more likely to get heads ten times or heads 7 times and tails 3 times?

**Answer
**

Heads 7 times and tails 3 times.There is only one way of getting heads 10 times (HHHHHHHHHH), but there are many ways of getting heads 7 times and tails 3 times (for example: HHHHHHHTTT, TTTHHHHHHH, HHHTHTTHHH, HTHTHHTHHH).
