Best answer

When a coin is tossed, the possible outcomes are head (H) and tail (T).
When a die is thrown, the possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
Thus, the sample space of this experiment is given by:
S = {T, H1, H3, H5, H21, H22, H23, H24, H25, H26, H41, H42, H43, H44, H45, H46, H61, H62, H63, H64, H65, H66}
