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 1/6 x 5=5/12

Assuming that the die is a "normal" one (it has the numbers 1 to 6 and that it is fair), then the probability of rolling six three times in a row is 1/6*1/6*1/6 = 1/216 = 0.00463 The probability of rolling six three times in a row eventually is 1 (ie a certainty).

Each time you toss the die the probability of rolling an even number is 3 out of 6 or 1/2. So, the probability of tossing three consecutive even numbers is (1/2)3 = 1/8 = 0.125, which is one chance in eight.

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%.

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.

Probability is a number between 0 and 1. The probability of an event cannot be 12.

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

The first number doesn't matter, just that the last three are the same as the first. P(rolling the same as the number before) = 1/6 P(rolling the same number as the first three times = (1/6)3 = 1/216
