The probability that, when rolling three dice none will come up odd is broken down by the probability that on odd roll will occur as an independent event. Rolling the first die has a probability of 3/6 that it will be odd. Rolling the second has the probability of 3/6 that it will be odd. Rolling the third has a probability of 3/6 will be odd. Rolling three and coming up with odd is really the probability that no odd numbers occurred, so therefore an even number DID happen (3/6), and an even number DID happen (3/6), and an even number DID happen (3/6). That's really just 1 - (3/6^3) or simplified 1 - (1/2^3). So therefore the probability that an odd number occurred in 3 die rolls is about 87.5%.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the probability of rolling the same number when three number cubes are rolled?

The first roll doesn't matter for probability, it just sets the number to be rolled by the other two. So: P(rolling the same number three times) = P(rolling a particular number)2 = (1/6)2 = 1/36


A 6-sided dice is rolledwhat is the probability of rolling a 3 or 4?

The probability of rolling a three or a four (meaning one roll, and either number would be counted a "success") is 1/3. This is because the probability of rolling a three is 1/6, the probability of rolling a four is 1/6, and if you are good with either possibility, then the combined probability is 1/6+1/6 = 1/3.
