1. A die is tossed 7 times, find the chance that

(a) All rolls show 2 or less

There are 6 outcomes on a pair of dice. Each roll is independent of other rolls. On a single roll, 2 of the six outcomes are two or less, so on a single roll the probability is 2/6 or 1/3. The probability that 7 consecutive rolls show a 2 or less is 1/3 to the seventh power or:

P = (1/3) (1/3) (1/3) (1/3) (1/3) (1/3) (1/3)

(b) None of the rolls show 2 or less

The probability of not rolling a 2 or less on a single roll is (2/3). The probability of not seeing this on 7 consecutive rolls is:

P = (2/3) (2/3) (2/3) ...
