## To find the probability of getting any color on the spinner and landing on heads, we need to determine the number of favorable outcomes and divide it by the total number of possible outcomes.

In this case, we have 5 possible outcomes for the spinner (blue, green, yellow, red, and purple), and 2 possible outcomes for the coin (heads or tails).

Since we want any color on the spinner and heads on the coin, the favorable outcomes would be when the spinner lands on any color, and the coin lands on heads.

The number of favorable outcomes is 5 (number of colors on the spinner) multiplied by 1 (one outcome for heads on the coin), which gives us a total of 5 favorable outcomes.

The total number of possible outcomes is the product of the number of outcomes on the spinner (5) and the number of outcomes on the coin (2), which gives us a total of 10 possible outcomes.

To find the probability, we divide the number of favorable outcomes (5) by the total number of possible outcomes (10):

Probability = Number of favorable outcomes / Total number of possible outcomes
= 5 / 10
= 0.5

So, the probability of getting any color on the spinner and landing on heads is 0.5 or 50%.

## To calculate the probability of getting any color on the spinner and landing on heads, we need to determine the number of favorable outcomes and the total number of possible outcomes.

In this scenario, we have 5 possible colors on the spinner and 2 outcomes with the coin (heads or tails). To find the probability, we multiply the probabilities of each event.

The probability of landing on any color on the spinner is 5 out of 5, which is 1. The probability of the coin landing on heads is 1 out of 2, which is 1/2.

To find the probability of both events occurring together, we multiply their probabilities: 1 (spinner) * 1/2 (coin) = 1/2.

Therefore, the probability of getting any color on the spinner and landing on heads is 1/2 or 0.5, which can also be expressed as a 50% chance.
