The probability of 3 specific dice rolls is the probability that each one will happen multiplied together. For instance, the probability of rolling 2 then 6 then 4 is the probability of all of these multiplied together: The probability of rolling 2 is 1/6. The probability of rolling 6 is 1/6. The probability of rolling 4 is 1/6. Multiply these together and we get the total probability as 1/216

The answer depends on how many times in total the dice are rolled. As the total number of rolls increases, the probability rolling a 6 and 4 three times in a row increases towards 1.

If you keep rolling the die, the probability is 1. If you require a 3 and a 4 in the first two rolls, the answer is (1/6)*(1/6) = 1/36

The probability that, when rolling three dice none will come up odd is broken down by the probability that on odd roll will occur as an independent event. Rolling the first die has a probability of 3/6 that it will be odd. Rolling the second has the probability of 3/6 that it will be odd. Rolling the third has a probability of 3/6 will be odd. Rolling three and coming up with odd is really the probability that no odd numbers occurred, so therefore an even number DID happen (3/6), and an even number DID happen (3/6), and an even number DID happen (3/6). That's really just 1 - (3/6^3) or simplified 1 - (1/2^3). So therefore the probability that an odd number occurred in 3 die rolls is about 87.5%.

the probability is denoted: (1/6)x(1/6)=1/36

Rolling a sum of 15 on three rolls of a die, when the first roll is a 4, is the same as rolling a sum of 11 on the second and third roll. The probability of rolling 11 on two dice is 3 in 36, or 1 in 12.

The probability of of rolling three ones on three dice is (1 in 6)3, or 1 in 216, or about 0.004630.

2/6 or 1/3 or 0.3333.

assuming a single six sided die the probability of rolling a three is 1/6

The probability of rolling a six is one in six. The probability of rolling three consecutive sixes is one in 216. (1/6 x 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/216)

the probability is denoted: (1/6)x(1/6)=1/36

The probability of rolling an odd number is 3/6 (or rather, 1/2), so the probability of rolling an odd number three times in a row is 1/2^3 is 1/8 or 12.5%.

It depends on what size die you use, what its labels are and how many rolls you make. For example using a standard six-sided die and one roll, the probability of no sixes is 5/6 or ~0.83; the probability of no sixes with 25 rolls is less than 0.01 or 1%. If you used a standard d3 (three-sided die) then the probability will always be 1 or 100%, since rolling a six is impossible; but if every side has '6' on it the probability is 0, since every roll must be a 6.
