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.
