I need your help in JavaScript please

I wish to write a script that simulates coin tossing, to let the program toss a simulated coin each time the user clicks the “Flip Coin” button and also allow the user to flip a coin multiple times (or multiple coins!) and further to allow the user to reset the form or forms if he/she use more than one.I will Use a function flip() that takes no arguments and returns false for tails and true for heads

here is my code so far:

You make it working by coding scripts.
And your question should be more technically about scripting techniques and less socially like who is willing doing your work and write your application for you and for free ;-)

for loop should be "for (var count = 0; count < tosstimes; count++)"
 onclick = "mutiToss()" should be     onclick="multiToss()"
