 Question 486278: A coin is tossed and a number cube is rolled.What is the probability that the coin shows heads and the number cube shows a number less than 2?Answer by Edwin McCravy(8879)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A coin is tossed and a number cube is rolled.What is the probability that the coin shows heads and the number cube shows a number less than 2? ```The sample space is this set of twelve outcomes: H1,H2,H3,H4,H5,H6,T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6 Only the red one is such that it shows heads and the number cube shows a number less than 2. The only number on a number cube less than 2 is 1. So that's 1 way out of 12, or -------------- You can also do it this way. The number in the sample space is gotten not by listing them as I did above, but just by figuring out how many there are. The coin can fall one of 2 ways, and for each of the 2 ways the coin can fall, there are 6 ways the dice can fall. That's 2×6 or 12 ways. And so the probability is 1 out of 12 or . Edwin```
