    Probability

    You have rolled a fair six-sided die three times and the result has been “one” all three times. On the fourth roll, what is the probability of rolling a one?

    I need help with this please.

    Re: Probability

    Your question says that the die is fair. What is the probability of rolling a one on a fair die? Previous results don't matter because we know that it is a fair die.

    Dice rolls are independent.
