There are 6*6*2 = 72 possible outcomes.

For a coin toss, there are 2 possible outcomes (heads or tails). For five tosses, therefore, there are 25 possible outcomes (25 = 32). However, this assumes that order is important (i.e. that HtttH is different to tHtHt). If you don't care what order the heads or tails fall in, there are only 6 outcomes.
