I started by looking at the probability of any given situation and maybe making a tree but my professor hasn't explained things very well and most the notes I see online are overwhelming

A Game of Coin and Die. This game is played with a fair coin and a die. First player flips a coin. If it turns out head(H), the player proceeds with tossing a die. If it turns out tail(T), the player proceeds with flipping a coin for the second time. The player wins if it gets head on the first tossing and 6 on the second or tails on both flips of coin. What is the probability of winning a game?

Is it simply the probability of getting heads and multiplied by the probability of getting a 6?
