The probability of getting at least one head in 6 flips of a fair coin can perhaps be more easily computed by figuring out the probability of not getting one head, and subtracting that from 100%. What is the probability of flipping tails 6 times in a row? What's left over after you subtract that from 100% is the probability that you'll get at least one head.
