Solution

When a coin is tossed, the outcomes are H, T. When a dice is thrown, the outcomes can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Thus, we can write the two parts of this experiment as follows:

Hence, the sample space 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)}

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
