Probability Help, please! Harold flips a coin and rolls a standard number cube. Find the probability that the coin will show tails and the cube will show a seven. Write the probability as a fraction in simplest form.

    Doesn't a standard number cube have numbers 1-6?

    So the probability of getting a 7 would be 0% So the answer is 0 ?

    How is it 1/6 when there's not a number "7" on the cube, though?

    I never saw a number cube with the number '7' so I guess it's 0% probability?

    No, it's fine! I just wanted to make sure I wasn't making a mistake.

    I have a question on this one too because I feel like it would be 1/36 because P( rolling a six)=1/6 and P(spinning a purple)=1/6 and multiplied would equal 1/36, right?
