**multiplication and addition principle for count possibilities???????/**

we toss a fair coin 5 times and recored the sequence of head and tails obtained.how may sequences are possible that start with head OR end with head.??????

so what i did was using addition theorm i divided this complex process in to 3 simple partitions like below

X1=start with head AND end with head

X2=start with head AND end with tail

X3=start with tail AND end with head

so my answer should be X1+X2+X3........

but im supposed to find X1,X2,and X3 by using the multiplication theorem but im little bit confused about how to use it

can anyone help me out.thanks!~!!!!!!!!!!
