    [SOLVED] probability for dice roll

    question:

    we toss a die twice in a row

    a- what is the probability we get a double 4?

    b- what is the probability we get a 3 first then a 4?

    i came up with:

    a- 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36

    b- 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36

    can someone confirm this?
