  1. what is the probability of not getting a four on the first try and a 4 on the second.

    Pr=5/6 * 1/6

    odd prime number? 1,3, 5, ?

    expected waiting time? Don't know, what is the time for each roll?

    Prob one roll=3/6
    since this is 1/2, then one should "expect" a prime number in the first roll.
