Rolling three once on a regular die is 1/6 likely. Rolling three twice in a row on a regular die is 1/12 likely. How likely is it that your next roll on the same die will be a three?

Hint:

This is not the same as asking how likely it is that you'll roll the die three times and get three on all of those rolls.
