You have three fair coins. The first has a 0 on one side and a 1 on the other. The second has a 2 on one side and a 3 on the other, and the third has a 4 on one side and a 5 on the other. You flip the three coins and write down the numbers you see. a) List all the outcomes for this experiment. b) What is the probability that the sum of the numbers on the coins is 7?

for the 1st part draw a tree diagram |dw:1366674265718:dw| you can finish the last stage of the tree diagram... the diagram will also give all the possible outcomes. for part (b) just find the number of outcomes that sum to 7 and put that over the total number of outcomes. hope this helps
