It is a certainty. If the die is rolled often enough, the probability that two consecutive rolls show a six is 1.

Probability = favorable outcomes / total chances of outcome To find probability of two events happening favorably in succession (like you wanting to roll two sixes in a row), you simply multiply the probably of rolling both sixes together. Thus, (1/6) * (1/6) = 1/36 You have a 1 in 36 chance of rolling two sixes in a row

The chance that one dice falls on 6 is 1 out of 6. The probability that dice falls twice in a row is 1 out of 6 and 1 out of 6, that is (1/6)(1/6)=(1/6)^2=1/36.Hence the probability of six sixes in a row is(1/6)^6=1 out of 46,656.

In one roll the probability is 1/36.

Rollin for dubs- check em 1/6 chance for rolling the first six. 1/6 chance for rolling the second one (independantly). when doing compound probability problems like this you multiply the chances of each soooo 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36 chance of rolling dubs sixes (or any other number for that matter)

Prob(No sixes in 6 rolls) = [Prob(Not a six in a roll)]6 = (5/6)6 = 0.3349

In one roll the probability is 1/36.

1/36

The probability is approx 0.1608

Probability(at least 1 six) = 1 - probability(no sixes) = 1 - 5/6 x 5/6 x 5/6 = 1 - 125/216 = 91/216 ≈ 0.421 = 42.1%

The probability is 0.0322
