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.

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

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

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
