Suppose that you toss a coin and roll a die. What is the probability of obtaining each of the following combinations? (Enter your answers as fractions.)

P(Tails or a Five)

  • Math -

    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.
