Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are 8 numbers right? so if you roll the dice any one of 1 to 8 will be obtaines So that is how many outcomes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right so for every 1 of the eight numbers you will get any 1 of the 3 cards  that's a possible number of outcomes of 8 * 3 = 24. (this is the counting principle)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Flipping a coin has 2 outcomes Heads and tails so possible outcomes for the whole experiment = 24 * what?
