**Reiny**, Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 5:28pmGenerally, if the two events are mutually exclusive,

that is, one event has no effect on the outcome of the other,

then if you want the Prob(eventA AND eventB) you multiply them

if you want Prob(eventA OR eventB) you add them

so probability of 5 and heads would be 1/12

but

the probability of a 5 or heads would be

1/2 + 1/6 = 2/3
