nice problem. Two related problems:

GIVEN: a bag with three die a 6-sided a 12-sided and a 20-sided in it:

1) pick one dice from the bag and roll it. What is the chance you get a 4? A 10? A 15?

2) No matter what you got on the first roll, pick one of the two remaining dice from the bag and roll it. What is the chance you get a 4? A 10? A 15?

Cheers,
