I roll a die and flip three coins at the same time, and repeat this multiple times. What is the probability that I flip three heads twice in a row before I roll a 6?

After re-reading this question, I realize this is not the same question answered in the link. However, the method for determining the solution is similar. The sample space for the die is notably smaller, (one (1) six in two (2) attempts instead of two (2) sixes in two (2) attempts), while the sample space for the coins remains the same.   

 

Amy, perhaps you would like to attempt a solution for this after reviewing solution for the more complex dynamic.
