(a) Are the rolls independent?
(b) Find the probability that all four rolls are a ﬁve.
(c) Find the chance that at least one roll is a ﬁve.
(d) Find the probability that at least three ﬁves are rolled.

1 6. One hundred draws will be made from the box 2 3 4 5 6. (a) If the sum of the draws from the box is 321, then what is the average?
(b) If the average of the draws is 3.78, then what is the sum?
(c) Estimate the chance that the average of the draws is between 3 and 4.
