Firstly, the probability when tossing a coin and getting a head or tail is 1/2, then rolling a die, there are 6 sides so the chance of rolling any number is 1/6, there are 2 chances of rolling greater than 4 ie 5 and 6, so the probability of rolling a 5 or 6 in 1/3, as these are independent events you multiply the probability getting a heads of tails, (1/2) by the probability of rolling a five or six, (1/3) which gives you 1/6 or 0.1666 recurring.

The probability of a head is 1/2. The probability of an odd number is 1/2. 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 or 0.25

There are 36 possibilities when rolling two six sided die. 15 of them result in a prime number (2,3,5,7,11) So the probability is 15 in 36 or a 5 in 12 chance.

The probability of rolling a number less than 5; which is a 4, 3, 2, or 1 is 4/6 or 2/3. The probability of tossing a head is 1/2. So, the probability of a roll less than 5 and a head is 2/3*1/2 or 1/3 or 0.333. 4/12

It is 2/3.

The probability of rolling a 2 is 1 in 6. The probability of rolling an even number is 3 in 6. The probability of doing both, on two rolls, is 3 in 36, or 1 in 12.

A die has six sides, so the probability of rolling an even number is 1 in 2, or 50-50. A coin has two sides, so the probability of flipping the coin and getting heads is 1 in 2, or 50-50. The probability that both will happen together is the one in two OF one in two, or one in FOUR chance that both will happen. So, the probability is 25%.

impossible

It is 1/2.

Each time you toss the die the probability of rolling an even number is 3 out of 6 or 1/2. So, the probability of tossing three consecutive even numbers is (1/2)3 = 1/8 = 0.125, which is one chance in eight.

1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 1/2= probability of landing an even number 1/2 = probability of landing a heads
