2. Take the probability of each one (1/12 and 1/12), and multiply both of the fractions together. That will give you the probability.

Those kind of questions are called compound events. It's where you just have to take the probability of each "situation" and multiply them together. Though this answer is too late, I hope you understand the material. ;)
