A die is rolled and a coin is tossed. What is the probability that a 3 will be rolled and a tail tossed?
Find the probability of each event separately, and then multiply the answers. The probability of rolling a 3 is 1/6 and the probability of tossing a tail is 1/2. To find the probability of both of them happening, multiply1/6 × 1/2 = 1/12. The probability is 1/12.
