[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Doesn't it seem like the longer a puzzle explanation is, the more likely you are to find a trick in the wording?

    Read the explanation carefully and pay attention to what exactly it is that you're being asked to answer.

    You shouldn't need to calculate anything to find your answer.

Hint Two
    Don't bother multiplying 216 by six again. You don't need to do anything like that to find your answer. That's right, this puzzle is THAT simple.

Hint Three
    It doesn't matter what numbers appeared in the three previous rolls.

    The puzzle is asking you what the probability is of a three showing up in the next roll.

[edit] When Failed

Give it another try!

You're probably making the puzzle more complicated than it needs to be. Keep things simple and you'll find your answer soon enough.

[edit] When Completed

Terrific!

It doesn't matter how many times you roll the same number. If you are only asking about the probability of rolling a three in one turn, the chances will always be one in six.

[edit] Solution

The chances are one in six.
