A die has one red face, two blue faces, and three green faces. It is rolled 5 times. Find the chance that the red face appears on one of the rolls and the remaining rolls are green.

[Careful what you multiply. The most straightforward method is to follow the derivation of the binomial formula.]

If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

(1/6)(3/6)^4 = ?

To get an A grade on the test, you need a total score of more than 16 points. One of the students knows the correct answer to 6 of the 20 questions. The rest she guesses at random by tossing a coin (one toss per question, as in 4B). What is the chance that she gets an A grade on the test?
