*Probability Problem - please help!*

I need the answer/brief explanation for this question by tonight! Any replies would be greatly appreciated!

In a particular game, a fair die is tossed. If the number rolled is either a four or five, you win $1. If the number rolled is a six, you win $4. If the number rolled is a one, two, or three, you win nothing. You are going to play the game twice.

The probability that you win at least $1 both times is
(a) 1/2
(b) 4/36
(c) 1/36
(d) 1/4
(e) 3/4

1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4.
