Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exactly! so since options A and B both have 2 numbers in them, they can't be possible! Now you're down to options C and D. Only one of them is possible.. Do you notice anything incorrect with either of them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I believe C is the correct answer i don't have a explanation on how but D just seems impossible headstails7 i don't see where 7 comes into play when they flip a coin twice & roll a die

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its a bit silly of a question. The question wants you to assume that you are using a standard 6 sided die. Since it only has 6 sides, you can't possibly get a 7. In other words, you're absolutely right!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i didn't even think of that way but i just knew it didn't make any sense because 7 wasn't even mention into the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to think about it more visually, consider this table: dw:1432962201590:dw Everything in the table represents a part of the sample space. The representative sample space would be if you picked one thing from each column of the table. In other words, if you can't get one of the answer choices by circling one thing from each column, its not part of the sample space and can't be the answer!
