    1.

    prob(a 3) = 1/6
    prob(greater than 3) = 3/6 = 1/2

    since you want prob a red 3 AND
    you would have
    (1/6)*(1/2) = 1/12

    How did you get 3/5 ?

    2.
    prob(first greater than 25) = 26/50
    prob(second greater than 25) 25/49
    prob (third greater than 25) = 24/48

    so ...
    26/50 * 25/49 * 24/48 = 13/98
