Consider an unbiased cubic dice with opposite faces coloured identically and each face coloured red, blue or green such that each colour appears only two times on the dice. If the dice is thrown thrice, the probability of obtaining red colour on top face of the dice at least twice is----

I am getting 0.75 can anyone confirm this ?

$\binom{3}{2}*(\frac{1}{3})^{2}* \frac{2}{3} + \binom{3}{3}*(\frac{1}{3})^{3} = \frac{7}{27} = 0.259$

Why can't we do like P[x>=2]=1-{P[x=0]+P[x=1]}  ?

Unbiased cubic dice with opposite faces coloured identically and each face coloured red, blue or green such that each colour appears only two times on the dice means $\frac{2}{6} = \frac{1}{3}$ is probability of each color comes on top.

Now ask Atleast two

For 2= $\binom{3}{2}(\frac{1}{3})^{2} \frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{4}{9}$

For 3= $\binom{3}{3}(\frac{1}{3})^{3}$ = $\frac{1}{27}$

Total = $\frac{7}{27}= 0.252$

@ Prashant.  Why can't we do like P[x>=2]=1-{P[x=0]+P[x=1]}  ?

Let X1, X2 be two independent normal random variables with means μ1, μ2 and standard deviations σ1, σ2 respectively. Consider Y =X1-X2; µ1=µ2=1, σl=1, σ2=2. Then. (a) Y is normal distributed with mean 0 and variance 1 (b) Y is normally distributed with mean 0 and ... (c) Y has mean 0 and variance 5, but is NOT normally distributed (d) Y has mean 0 and variance 1, but is NOT normally distributed
