I am assuming that this die is fair die and the coin is not biased. The probability of getting a number less than 3 is the probability of rolling a 1 or a 2 i.e. 1/6 + 1/6 = 2/6 which simplifies to 1/3. The probability of getting a head when you flip a fair coin is 1/2. Both are independent events, so the probability of getting a number less than 3 and getting a head is 1/3 x 1/2 = 1/6. One can get the same answer from a sample space diagram
