(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Two dice are rolled. What is the probability that the first die is a perfect square and the second die is a 4?

First die : 2/6

Second die : 1/6

Won't the probability be just (2/ 6) * (1 / 6) = 2 / 36 = 1 / 18

My answer says 3 / 6 but aren't these events not mutually exclusive? :|
