11-7.

Coach Kenadt has $12$ players on his basketball team and needs to select one player to be the team representative to the athletic student council. He wants the selection to be fair, meaning each player has an equal chance of being selected. Rummaging through his gym bag, he finds a single six-sided die and a nickel. How could he use the nickel and die to select the team representative fairly?

There are $6$ numbers of the die and heads and tails on the nickel.
How many combinations of numbers and H/T can you make?
