# Math Help - Tree Diagram Help

1. ## Tree Diagram Help

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

Draw a tree diagram to illustrate the different possibilties.

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

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