Can someone help me? Why the argument is false ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In this problem you must explain the results in intuitiva way. One formal prove or verbal description of a prove is not satisfactory answers.

1) It considers the following events:

A: To get one 6 in four throwing of a die;

B: To get one double 6 in twenty and four throwing of a pair of dice.

Argument: We have P(A) = P(B), because the probability of if getting one 6 in the throwing of a die is six times bigger than the probability of if getting double 6 in the throwing of a pair of dice, but the number of throwings of event B is six times bigger than the number of throwings of event A.

It is true or false. Explain in intuitive way.
