# What is the value of π in this experiment(Bernoulli)?

Experiment: You roll a fair 6-sided die 5 times. Define the random variable x = number of times you rolled an even number.

The probability of exactly X successes in n trials for a Bernoulli process is:

$$\bigg(\frac{n!}{X!(n - X)!} \bigg) (\pi^{X}) (1 - \pi)^{n-X}$$

What are the possible values for X? 0-5

What is the value of "n" in this experiment? 5

What is the value of "π" in this experiment?

What is the value of (1-π) in this experiment?

π is the percentage of chance that even numbers are rolled.

I was thinking "π " would be .5, because of 2,4,6 being the only options for rolling even numbers. Although, the dice is rolled 5 times so I don't know if that would change.
