1/60^5 assuming you’re just trying to match the first pull from A. You multiply.

Also, your addition is incorrect:

1/60+1/60+1/60 = 3/60

Was the 3/180 just a typo or is it how you thought those fractions should be added? If it is the latter case you really should master operations with fractions first before learning probability questions like these.
