The numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 can fall on the dice.
There are 6 in total. The probability that a number greater than 3 will fall out for the first time is 3/6=1/2.
The probability that a number greater than 3 will fall out the second time is 3/6=1/2.
In order to calculate the probability that a number greater than 3 is rolled BOTH times, we must multiply 1/2 and 1/2.
1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 = 0.25.
