(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); How many heads in a row would you expect to find if you toss a fair coin 8 times?

I am thinking that the probability of 3 heads is 1/8 and since you have 8 tosses, that would give an E(x) of 1. So I am guessing that 3 is the number of heads one would expect to see in a fair coin is tossed 8 times. But I am not sure... Any help?
