Example Suppose the first task is to roll a five-sided blue-colored die and the second task is to role a six-sided orange-colored die. How many different outcomes are there? Arthur Berg Counting Examples 2/ 12 Theorems Examples Fundamental Principle of Counting Theorem (Fundamental Principle of Counting) If the first task has n 1 possible outcomes and the second task has n 2 possible outcomes, then there are n 1 n 2 possible outcomes for the two tasks together. Example Suppose the first task is to roll a five-sided blue-colored die and the second task is to role a six-sided orange-colored die. How many different outcomes are there? Ans: 6 * 5 = 30.
