Suppose you toss a coin, and then roll a standard sixsided die. What is
the probability of getting Tails and an odd number?


4.

Suppose you toss a coin, and then roll a standard sixsided die. What is
the probability of not getting Tails or an odd number?
NOTE to Editor  In the
manuscript for 12.3, Question 6 b) was replaced with P(anything except 3 and yellow). If the
intent is to use the concept of complementary events, using the answer found from Question 6 a) then
I think that the wording should be change to say P(anything except 3 OR yellow).
