For the other two, the probablilty of two tails is 1/2*1/2=1/4

Therefore, pr(at least one head)=1-1/4=3/4

There are a total of eight possible outcomes for three coins: HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, TTH, THT! HTT, TTT. Out of these eight outcomes, seven of these show at least one tail (all except HHH). After counting, we find that six of these seven outcomes have at least one head, so the probability is—6/7.
