Question

For this problem, assume that the numbers 1 through 3 are equally likely, as are the numbers 4 through 6, yet rolling a 1 is two times as likely as rolling a 4.

(1) If we have probability weights w1w1 through w6, one for each possible outcome, what is the the value of w4? 

(2) What is the value of w1?
