A standard die is rolled three times. What is the probability that a prime number
is rolled on exactly one of the three rolls?

  • math -

    Prime = 2, 3, 5

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

    Rolling prime = 1/2

    Rolling non-prime = 1/2
