The chance of having a boy or girl each time is 1/2 so wouldn't you just say

1/2 * 1/2 *1/2 * 1/2 = 1/16 chances of having 2 boys and 2 girls because each of the 4 times it would be 1/2 to have one or the other so it doesn't change just because of what you had previous so you multiply your chances each time

the number cube question

Assuming the die (number cube) is fair, any side is equally probable. Therefore the probability of landing on "1" is 1/6. The key here is that the tosses are independent: The previous tosses have no impact on the result of the next toss.

So yes you are correct 1/6
