What is the probability of obtaining 8 heads in a row when flipping a fair coin? interpret this probability.

Step 1

Since this is a fair coin, probability of getting a head P(H) = P(T) = 0.5  since there are just 2 possible outcomes, 

Each flip is an independent event so probability of 8 heads in a row would be = P(H) * P(H) *P(H) *P(H) *P(H) *P(H) *P(H) *P(H)
