Probability of coming tail in next toss would be 1/2. As it doesn't matter how many heads we got earlier, because coin is fair.

I have two coins.
* One of the coin is a faulty coin having tail on both side of it.
* The other coin is a perfect coin (heads on side and tail on other).

I blind fold myself and pick a coin and put the coin on table. The face of coin towards the sky is tail.

What is the probability that other side is also tail ?
