Thanks in advance. A triple? Do you mean probability of a 3 in the first five rolls of a single dice?
like getting triple 1s,2s,3s,4s..... for a dice. sorry i should have clarify the question.

since there are ways of rolling die, and only of the outcomes are triples. The desired probability is: Oh, and yeah, it's a binomial.
