head or a six?

Pr(head or six)= 1-Pr(tail and not a six)

= 1/2*5/6=5/12

Grrrr. I forgot the 1

Pr (head or six)=1=5/12=7/12

In a particular game, a fair die is tossed. If the number of spots showing is either four or five, you win $1. If the number of spots showing is six, you win $4. And if the number of spots showing is one, two, or three, you win nothing. You are going to play game twice.

The probability that you win $4 both times is

a)1/6

b)1/3

c)1/36

d)1/4

e)1/12
