    Sample space refers to the list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment/event.

    For eg. when you roll a dice, you can get a 1,2,3,4,5 or a 6, which is the sample space. so, 6 possible outcomes, hence 6 is the outcomes in the sample space.

    If I get 1 on one dice, the second can have 6 possible outcomes, do you think that 12 is the no. of outcomes?

    when you are rolling two dice, you can have, 1 on one dice, and 1,2,3,4,5,6 on the other. similarly two on the first's gace and 6 possibilities on the other, and so on.. so 6*6 = 36 You're righty-right!! :P
