A coin is tossed and a single 6-sided die is rolled. Find the probability of landing on the head side of the coin and rolling a 3 on the die.
Probability of head and 3 on a die is:
P( head and 3 ) = p(head )* P(3)
We multiply probabilities because we have 2 independent events.
We know that p(head) = 1/2
Also p(3) = 1/6
Then P( head and 3) = 1/2 * 1/6 = 1/12
