Q:
# student made five tetrahedrons, a three dimensional figure with four triangular faces and labeled the faces 1-4. use an equation to find the probability that all five tetrahedrons land on 3. how do I do this? I don't understand please help

Accepted Solution

A:

The probability is 1/1024.

Each tetrahedron has a 1/4 chance of landing on 3, since there are 4 sides and only one of them is marked 3.

Each tetrahedron roll is independent, since no roll is affected by another.

This means we multiply the probabilities:

1/4(1/4)(1/4)(1/4)(1/4) = 1/1024
