    Since there are two actions going on, in order to determine the number of outcomes we can find the outcomes of each event individually and then multiply them.

    rolling a cube: has 6 outcomes

    picking a card 1-14: has 14 different outcomes

    Multiplying these two outcomes will yield:

    6*14 = 84 different outcomes.
