Probability of being all heads = $\frac{1}{64}$

Work Step by Step

When a coin is tossed, Total outcomes = 2 Favorable outcomes to get heads = 1 Probability of getting heads = $\frac{1}{2}$ When a coin is tossed six times, probability of being all heads = $\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}$ = $\frac{1}{64}$
