When two events occur, there are several possible outcomes.

For example, when a coin is thrown, it can land heads up (H) or tails up (T) and when a die is thrown it can land showing a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

So when they are both thrown, the possible outcomes are:

H 1

H 2

H 3

H 4

H 5

H 6

T 1

T 2

T 3

T 4

T 5

T 6

There are **12 **possible outcomes.

So the probability of getting a head and a 6, P(H6) = 1/12

**Make carefully organised, systematic lists when determining all the outcomes. **

**Do not just write out the outcomes randomly.**
