### Institutional Brokerage Co-op at Susquehanna International Group was asked...

 On the phone was asked two simple probability questions. What is the probability of being dealt a pair of cards? What is the probability of rolling the same side of a dice three times in a row.6 Answers1/17 and 1/36I think the second answer is 1/216 . Please explain ?The reason it is 1/36 is because it does not specify which side it must be. Therefore the first roll does not really count. Once you take the first roll it will decide what you need to roll the next two times. Therefore the math is 1*(1/6)*(1/6)= 1/36. If they asked what is the probability of rolling a 6 three times in a row then it would be 1/216.Show More ResponsesWas asked the card question also. For a pair of cards to be dealt from a 52card deck is 3/51. So first card drawn doesnt matter so you have 3 cards out of the 51 cards left that will match the first hence 3/51 as the probabilityAndyPeter

 The interviewer wanted to make sure I was looking for a long term commitment given that I was looking to leave a firm I had been at for only 3.5 years.1 AnswerInitially I said, "I'm not a job hopper." to which he answered, "Isn't that what you're doing now?" and I immediately answered "No." The difference here was that while my first job in insurance was the result of me just looking for a job, this time I actually have a career and I'm deciding what I want to do with it; I want self-determination in where I'm going in life and I don't want to make that journey at Marsh for several reasons--the volitility of the company and its leadership, the fact that I was grossly underpaid and had not yet been promoted, and that even if I were to be promoted and paid properly at Marsh I felt drawn to Aon because I believed it was guided by a better corporate philosophy and going in the right direction for the industry. Aon was where I wanted to be.

 If you have a 3 sided dice, what is the probability that you will get a 6 and what is the probability that you will get a 6 three times2 Answersthis is just a singular di? not a pair of dice? in this case, wouldn't you expect the values to be 1,2,3. none of these values equaling 6 therefore the probability of getting 6 is 0. obviously getting 6 three times is also not possible.Assuming singular. Although "dice" can mean mean one or more in today's vernacular. Need to know if 6 is one (or more) of the numbers on the three sides. Show as probability of rolling one 6; probability of rolling two 6s - If on none of the sides, then zero; zero. If on two sides, then 66%; 8/27 or 29.6%. If on all three sides then 100%; 100%
