The probability of flipping a quarter and getting heads is 1 in 2. the probability of rolling a die and getting 6 is 1 in 6.

1 in 2.

probability of rolling a 3 = 1/6 probability of flipping a head = 1/2 therefore, overall = 1/12

the probability is 2/6

The probability of rolling a 2 on a die before flipping a heads on a coin is 1 in 12. The probability of rolling a 2 is 1 in 6. The probability of flipping heads is 1 in 2. Since these are sequentially unrelated events, you simply multiply the probabilities together.

the probability is 2/6

The probability of flipping tails on a perfect coin in a perfect toss is 0.5. The probability of rolling 1 on a die is 1 in 6. Likewise, the probability of rolling 6 on a die is 1 in 6. So the probability of rolling either 1 or 6 is 2 in 6 (which is 1 in 3).

The probability of rolling a number greater than 6 on a die is 0.

The probability is 5/6 (83.333%).

1/24

You take the probability of each event and multiply them. In the case of the given example, your odds or flipping a head and rolling a 5 would be 1/2 * 1/6, which equals 1/12.

The probability is 1.
