# APPLICATIONSSnake eyes What is the probability of rolling snakes eyes (“double ones”) three times in a row? To determine

To find:

The probability of rolling snakes eyes (“double ones”) three times in a row.

Explanation

Approach:

P(E)=n(E)n(S)(1)

Here, P(E) is the probability of the event E.

n(E) is the number of elements in E.

n(S) is the number of elements in the sample space S.

Fundamental principle of counting:

Suppose an event E occur in p different ways and an event F occur in q different ways then, the total number of ways of occurrence of these two events in the given order is p×q.

Calculation:

Let E be the event “rolling double ones”
