    so there are 2 spaces out of 6 2/6 = 1/3

    1/3 is the probability of landing on either "lose a turn" or "back 3"

    multiply that probability with the number of spins (36)

    1/3 x 36 = 3?

    it might help to think of 1/3 as 0.3333 (approximate)

    1/3 times 36 = 0.3333 times 36 = ???
