I just dropped a dime onto a wood floor and it landed on its edge and rolled an inch or so and stayed up. What are the chances of this?

Report as

The chances of the dime are 1/3. This is because the dime is assumed to have landed either on one of the three sides. That is on its edge, rolled an inch or stayed up.
