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.
