Please help! This is due tomorrow...

I don't understand how "Counting Outcomes and Theoretical Probability" works! There's a question that says:

You toss two coins. Find P (one head and one tail).

Please help!

  1. The possible outcomes are:
    H H
    H T
    T H
    T T

    The first number represents the first coin and the second number represents the second coin

    There are two 1 head - 1 tail possibilities out of four possible outomes.

    P = 2/4 = 1/2
