    Probability of tails = 3/4 Probability of heads = 1/4 Say you are going to make two coin flips, the outcomes are HH, TT, HT, TH. The probability of HH is (1/4) * (1/4) = 1/16. On average, it will take 16 trials to get two heads in a row. This will equal 32 coin flips, since each trial is two coin flips.
