Pr {Not getting a '5' in throwing a die} = 5/6.
Pr{ One does not roll any '5' in three consecutive rolls of a die} = ${\left(\frac{5}{6}\right)}^{3}$ = 125/216.

#### Explanation:

Here the events of throwing a number other than '5' in consecutive throws is independent. Hence probability is product of the probabilities namely (5/6) $\times$ (5/6)$\times$ (5/6) = 125/216.
