ANSWER: 5:8?

Three Coins are tossed. Find the probability that exactly 2 coins show heads if the first coin shows heads.?

    The first answer is correct.

    For the second, once you have the first head there are four possibilities for the other two coins:

    HH
    TT
    TH
    HT

    They must show one head for there to be two heads. What proportion do you find?

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
