    well the last two questions that you have asked, have been completely different. For your first question, I would use the underline method. If we roll the dice once, we need one fraction _____ If we roll the dice twice, then we need two fractions multiplied together _____ ______ If we roll the dice thrice, then we need three fractions multiplied together _____ ______ _______

    For your second question it is an expected value, so we see how many outcomes...... two ....... win or lose, so two blank lines ______ _______ win lose but we need a probability for each as well as the amount won or loss winning = 1/2 chance since 1/2 the numbers are even or winning = (1/2) Rs2 and losing = - (1/2) Re1 notice the negative sign for losing

    each of these questions that you are studying, cover a wide range of probability, probably to become the most successful at probability we will need practice at several of the same type of questions for awhile. Is this a review section that you are working on? A challenge section?
