The coin has 2 possible outcomes: heads H and tails T/ The die has 6 possible outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
There are then 26=12 possible outcomes of flipping the coin and rolling the die: H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6.
# of possible outcomes = 12
We note that 3 of the 12 possible outcomes result in tails and an odd number: T1, 73, T5.
# of favorable outcomes = 3
The probability is the number of favorable outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes:
P(tails and odd) = # of favorable outcomes /# of possible outcomes Te hie outcomes > =312=14=0.25=25%

The problem reads: Suppose P(X1)=.75 and P(Y2X1)=.40. What is the joint probability of X1 and Y2?
This is how I answered it. P(X1 and Y2) =P(X1)×P(Y1X1)=.75×.40=0.3.
What I don't understand is how do you get the P(Y1X1)? I am totally new to Statistices and I need to understand each part of the process in order to get the whole concept. Can anyone help me to understand why the P and X exist and what they represent?
