Sum

A coin and a die are tossed simultaneously. Enumerate the sample space and the following event.

B: Getting a prime number

#### Solution

When a coin and a die are tossed simultaneously, the sample space S is given by

S = {(H, 1), (H, 2), (H, 3), (H, 4), (H, 5), (H, 6), (T, 1), (T, 2), (T, 3), (T, 4), (T, 5), (T, 6)}

B: Getting a prime number.

∴ B = {(H, 2), (H, 3), (H, 5), (T, 2), (T, 3), (T, 5)}
