A fair die is thrown 14 times. What is the probability of getting point 1 on exactly 2 of the 14 throws? This one I am not too sure how to go about this. Would someone try to give me hints or walk me through it? Thanks.

Would someone try to give me hints or walk me through it? Thanks. Let X be the random variable number of 1's thrown. X ~ Binomial(n = 14, p = 1/6) Calculate Pr(X = 2).
Ok I got the answer. Thanks for your help.
