The probability of rolling a 3 with a standard die is 1 in 6. The probability of doing that two times in a row is 1 in 6 squared, or 1 in 36.

there is 0% probability, unless you are some super nerd, and calculate the chance of it splitting the six and you getting two threes in one roll :p

2/36 what you rolled the first time has nothing to do with the next roll. It's an independent event.

Not an easy question. Here's a long but logical answer. The chance of not getting a 3 on any throw is 5/6, so the chance of not getting any threes in the first 10 throws is (5/6)^10. Now, having reached that point, the chance of throwing three threes in the last three throws is 1/6 x 1/6 x1/6 or 1/216. So the probability of throwing three threes in any chosen three throws is (5/6)^10 x 1/216. This should seem logical because the probability of throwing three threes in the first three throws followed by ten failures to throw threes, should be the same as just getting threes in the last three throws. The probability is the same for getting threes in only the second, fourth and sixth throw, or any other combination of three throws. Now, there are a set number of combinations of 13 things taken in groups of three. This is given by the formula for C(13,3) = (13x12x11x10x9x8x7x6x5x4)/((10x9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1)x(3x2x1)). That cancels down to (13x12x11)/(3x2x1), and equals 286. So, there are this many ways you can pick out three throws which you want to be the threes, and the probability of them actually being threes is the first calculation we did. The answer to the question is 286 x (5/6)^10 x 1/216 which is 0.2138453, about.

The answer is 1 in 1000.Rolling a 4 on a ten sided die is a 1 in 10 shot.Rolling threes 4's is 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 which equals 1/1000.

There is no specific name for that activity.

There was a Mazda car with the number 323. The number is also significant as it has two threes in it and the middle number, two, is the number of threes in the number 323.

Three is the best number ever! That's what's so great about threes!

The plural is written 3s or threes when referring to the number itself, or sets or groups of three. - e.g. Seven threes are twenty-one. There are four 3s in his license plate number. We divided the group into threes for the scavenger hunt.

you could just use all the threes to make 333
