Answer:a) 1/4

b) 1/6

c) 1/12

Step-by-step explanation:Let S be the sample space.

S={H1,H2,H3,H4,H5,H6,T1,T2,T3,T4,T5,T6}

n(s) =12

EventsA: coin with head and die with prime number .

B:coin with head and die with composite number.

C:coin with tail and die with even prime number.

a) A={H2,H3,H5}

n(A) = 3

P(A) =n(A)/n(S)

=3/12

= 1/4

b) B={H4,H6}

n(B)= 2

P(B) = n(B)/n(S)

= 2/12

= 1/6

c) C ={T2}

n(C) = 1

P(C) = n(C)/n(S)

= 1/12
