A coin is flipped. If a heads is flipped, then the coin is flipped 5 more times and the number of heads flipped is noted; otherwise (i.e., a tails is flipped on the initial flip), then the coin is flipped 4 more times and the result of each flip (i.e., heads or tails) is noted successively. How many possible outcomes are in the sample space of this experiment?

    Number of outcomes are there when we toss 1 time = 2^1 = 2 toss 2 times = 2^2 = 4 toss 3 times = 2^3 = 8 toss 4 times = 2^4 = 16 toss 5 times = 2^5 = 32 Then complete the following tree diagram: |dw:1441324335944:dw|
