# Math Help - Probability Distrubtion...

1. ## Probability Distrubtion...

Question:
In an experiment, a fair cubical dice was rolled repeatedly until a six resulted, and the number of rolls was recorded. The experiment was conducted 60 times.
(a) Show that you would expect to get a six on the first roll ten times out of the 60 repetitions of the experiment.
(b) Find the expected frequency for two rolls correct to one decimal place.

Attempt:
(a) $n = 60$, $p = 1/6$
$E(x) =$ $n\times p$
$E(x) =$ $60\times\frac{1}{6}$
$E(x) = 10$

(b) Need Help...

The probability that you get a 6 on the second roll is 5/6 x 1/6 = 5/36
