A standard six-sided die is rolled twice. What is the probability that the product of the rolls is 1, 2, or 3?

I know, that this answer is a little late, so it may not help if this question was time sensitive, however, I hope this helps. For the product of the rolls to be one, we would need both rolls to be 1 which has a 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36 probability of occuring, to have a product of 2, we would need a 1 and a 2 on the die rolls, which has a probability of 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36 and for 3 we would need a 1 and a 3 which has a probability of 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36. 1/36 + 1/36 + 1/36 = 3/36 = 1/12! If you have any questions, just ask :)

There are 6 x 6 = 36 possible rolls

for a 1 2 or 3 you need 1 1 1 2 2 1 1 3 3 1 ===> five rolls out of 36 = ** 5/36 **
