In order to decide who will play first in a certain board game, each player rolls a four-sided die; the player with the highest score begins.
If two people are playing the game, the total number of ways in which they can roll the dice is 4*4 = 16. The number of ways in which the two get the same number on their die is 4.
4/16 = 1/4
The probability that two players get the same score is 1/4.
