   1. When a coin is tossed 3 times, x is the number of heads.

           (a) Create a probability distribution table for the variable x .

           (b) Create a probability histogram for the variable x .

well the only one i know i can answer is the last one and since we are following chance just getting a heads on a coin is 50% chance but if you want to get heads twice in a row that chance will be cut in half meaning you have a 25% chance to do so but since you want to test fate and do it a third time it would mean that your chance would be cut in half again... a whopping 12.5% chance to get heads 3 times in a row
