Actually out of $$5\cdot5\cdot5=125$$possible outcomes, there are 6 outcomes that result in winnings of $1700. They are $$(300, 400, 1000), (300, 1000, 400), (400, 300, 1000), (400, 1000, 300), (1000, 300, 400)$$and $$(1000, 400, 300)$$ where the ordered triplets indicate the results of the first, second, and third spin, respectively. So the probability we are looking for is $$\frac{6}{125}$$. Nov 15, 2019 ### 3+0 Answers #1 0 The only way to get 1700 is to land on 300, 400, then 1000, so the probability is 1/(5*4*3) = 1/60.
