Total number of colors in the spinner = 6 Number of primary colors = 3 Probability that Jim spins a primary color = 3/6 = 1/2 Total number of faces in a coin = 2 Number of heads in a coin = 1 Probability that Jim flips a coin = 1/2 Therefore, probability that Jim spins a primary color and flips a head = 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4.
