Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Start with N (Nickel) at the top. Draw two arrows leading downleft and downright. Let's have all of the downleft arrows represent "Heads" and all of the downright arrows representing "Tails" So, those arrows should each point to a D (Dime) (meaning, there will be 2 Ds). Again, since you have heads or tails, draw two arrows coming down from each of the D's. Now, each of those arrows should point to a Q (Quarter) (meaning that there will be 4 Qs). Again, since you have heads or tails, draw two arrows coming down from each of the Qs. You now have a tree showing all the possibilities. Now you are looking for all the instances where you have one downright arrow (Tails) and two downleft arrows (Heads) For instance: N (H)> D (H)> Q (T)> Nickel = Heads Dime = Heads Quarter = Tails
