Answer:
[tex]\frac{1}{36}[/tex]
Stepbystep explanation:
We will find the probability of rolling a 5 and then probability of rolling a 3 and then multiply the numbers to get the probability that he will roll a 5 and then a 3 in two rolls.
There are 6 total possibilities (1 through 6).
There are one 5s, so the probability of rolling a 5 would be:
P(roll 5) = 1/6
Also, there is one 3, so rolling a 3 would have the same probability.
P(roll 3) = 1/6
Hence,
Probability of rolling a 5 and then a 3 is:
P(5,3) = 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36
