    1. what is the probability of rolling 3? 2. what is the probability of getting tails? multiply these two probabilities to find the probability of rolling 3 AND getting tails

    YES! so let's try again: 1. what is the probability of getting 3? 2. what is the probability of getting tails? multiply these two probabilities to find the answer
