If we toss a die and then toss a coin, how many different results are possible?

This experiment has two stages $-$ tossing the die and tossing the coin.
The number of possible results of tossing a die is 6 . The number of possible results of tossing a coin is 2 . Thus, the number of possible results of the entire experiment is $6 \cdot 2=12$. One of the 12 possible results is the number 3 on the die and tails on the coin.
In effect, it makes no difference whether we first toss the die and only then toss the coin, or first toss the coin and then toss the die, or toss both at the same time. In each case, there are 12 possible results.
