Re: Generating Functions

How about 5 dice?

Re: Generating Functions

This is back a few pages..
Now supposing 2 die had faces of 2,4,6,8,10,12 and 2 other die had faces of 1,3,5,7,9,11.
All four die are thrown once. What is the probability of them summing to 20 or more?

Is it 545/648?


The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong.

Re: Generating Functions

The same it's been at least 2 pages. It's your non-prime sum of 1000 dice problem
