If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

P = 1/2 * 1/6 = ?

I assume you meant tails AND a five.

P = 1/2 * 1/6 = ?

Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.
