1. The probability of getting both heads with two coins is 1/4 — HH, TT, TH, HT. The probability of getting 2 heads with either-or aspects is determined by adding the independent, individual probabilities. Thus you would expect to get two heads 5 times in 20 tries.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
