What is the probability of rolling three fair dice and having all three dice show the same odd number?

A. 71/72

B. 1/36

C. 1/72

D. 1/108

E. 1/216

The probability of the first die’s showing an odd number is 1/2. The probability of the second die’s showing the same number is 1/6. The probability of the third (or last) die’s showing the same number is also 1/6.

Thus, the overall probability is 1/2 x 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/72.

Answer: C
