    Tree Diagram Help

    Second guessing myself;
    cecil tosses 5 coins, one after another.

    Draw a tree diagram to illustrate the different possibilties.

    my answer:

    1st flip < H T

    2nd flip < H T

    3rd flip < H T

    4rth flip < H T

    5th flip < H T

    therefore 32 different possibilties.

    Since theres 5 different coins is this right?

    or, should it look more like:

    H
    H <
    T
    1st flip <
    H
    T <
    T

    thanks for the help

    You get it right.
    You have 2 choices for the first flip, 2 for the second flip, etc.
     2^n = 2^5 = 32 *
