Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a binomial probability problem where your successful trial is a 6 and a fail trial is anything other than 6. So define, \[p=\frac{1}{6}\]and\[q=\frac{5}{6}\]Now the probability of obtaining a 6, four times, is\[p(X=6)=^5C_4p^4q=\frac{5!}{4!(54)!}\left( \frac{1}{6} \right)^4\left( \frac{5}{6} \right)=5\frac{5}{6^5}=\frac{25}{1296}\]
