1. The possible outcomes are HH, TT, TH and HT. What do you think?

Balls

1. In 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4, only 1 and 3 are odd.

2. Same info.

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

4. 0, 2 and 4 are not odd. Use rule from #3.
