How can i draw a tree diagram to show this data...
In a gambling game, players pay £1 entry fee. They then throw a die untill it shows a six. If only one throw is needed the player recieved £3. if two throws are needed, the player recieves £2. If three throws are needed, the player gets his her entry fee back, otherwise £1 is lost.
How can i show from a probobility tree,
the probobility that a player gets;
3)Gets the £1 entry fee back
4)looses the money
Help much appreichated

Take a look at this and let us know if you're still stuck.
Hi, thnaks for that, i must sound really dumb but im still a little unsure as to how i would work out those probs with the diagram. Could you explain a little more, pleasE?
Probability of getting a 6 is 1/6
Probability of not getting a 6 is 5/6
First two branches show the first throw, so the top branch shows getting a 6 on the first throw, with probability 1/6 and winning £3.
