When you roll a die, the chances of rolling a three are one in six. The chances of rolling a three twice in a row are one in 36, and the chances of rolling a three three times in a row are a jaw-dropping one in 216.
Let's assume you roll a die three times and get a three each time. Your chances of rolling a three on your next roll are one in how many?
Give it another try!
You're probably making the puzzle more complicated than it needs to be. Keep things simple and you'll find your answer soon enough.
It doesn't matter how many times you roll the same number. If you are only asking about the probability of rolling a three in one turn, the chances will always be one in six.
