The first roll doesn't matter for probability, it just sets the number to be rolled by the other two. So: P(rolling the same number three times) = P(rolling a particular number)2 = (1/6)2 = 1/36

It is approx 0.99989, that is, a near certainty.

That would depend upon what it is that is being rolled.

The probability is 21/36 = 7/12

The probability of rolling a number less than 6 on a die would be 5/6.

The probability is 1. It is a certainty that you will roll a number between and including one and six. The probability of rolling each individual number is 1/6.

Theoretical probability is the probability of something occurring when the math is done out on paper or 'in theory' such as the chance of rolling a six sided dice and getting a 2 is 1/6. Experimental probability is what actually occurs during an experiment trying to determine the probability of something. If a six sided dice is rolled ten times and the results are as follows 5,2,6,2,5,3,1,4,6,1 then the probability of rolling a 2 is 1/3. The law of large numbers states the more a probability experiment is preformed the closer to the theoretical probability the results will be.

Because 3/6 of the sides on a number cube have even numbers, the probability of rolling even on one number cube is 1/2(equivalent of 3/6). But since you're rolling twice, you multiply the probability of one by itself (therefore rolling 2 number cubes). So: 1/2x1/2=1/4 The probability of rolling an even number when a number cube is rolled twice is 1/4, 25%, or 1 out of 4.

The probability is 1, if the dice are rolled often enough.

4/6

If the die is rolled often enough, the probability is 1. With only two rolls of a fair die, the probability is 1/6.
