Farkle problem (Probability)If you were going to roll 6 dice, what is the probability of getting an all6? 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #2 20121223 19:08:17
Re: Farkle problem (Probability)There are six faces in one die. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Farkle problem (Probability)For six dice it will be You work out the probability of each event (1/6) and, if they are independent, mutliply the porbabilities. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20121223 20:27:58
Re: Farkle problem (Probability)Agnishom, when all dices face a 6, not only 2. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #5 20121223 20:59:10
Re: Farkle problem (Probability)Hi julianthemath; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20121226 11:52:50
Re: Farkle problem (Probability)Found it out. It's 1/46656, found it in Yahoo! Answers. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #7 20121226 19:31:23
