## What are the odds of rolling the same dice?

Think about one die to start. The probability that all the numbers will be the same if you roll one die is (obviously) 100%. With two dice, there are 62=36 possibilities, and only six of them are the same number twice, so the probability is 1/6.

## What is the probability that the dice show the same numbers?

The probability of two dice being the same particular number is 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36. This is not the same as saying that both dice are the same number. There are six different possible numbers, so that would be 6/36 or 1/6.

## What is the probability of getting the same numbers on 3 dice when they are thrown simultaneously ie 1 1 1 2 22 <UNK> answer in fraction or in decimal form?

There are 6 outcomes with all the numbers the same: 1-1-1, 2-2-2, …, 5-5-5, 6-6-6. So the probability of all the numbers being the same is 6/63.

## What are the odds of rolling the same number 3 times in a row on a d20?

Probability of getting 1 three times in a row = probability of getting 1 first time × probability of getting 1 second time × probability of getting 1 third time. Probability of getting 1 three times in a row = (1/6) × (1/6) × (1/6) = 1/216. Hence, the probability of getting 1 three times in a row is 0.463%.

## When rolling a pair of dice What is the probability of rolling the same number on both dice?

8 Answers. The probability of rolling a specific number twice in a row is indeed 1/36, because you have a 1/6 chance of getting that number on each of two rolls (1/6 x 1/6). The probability of rolling any number twice in a row is 1/6, because there are six ways to roll a specific number twice in a row (6 x 1/36).

## How many ways can you roll a 6 with 3 dice?

A. There is a total of 6^3=216 combinations if you roll 3 dice. There are 5^2×3=75 combinations that you will get one 6. Thus there is a 75/216=25/72 chance of getting only one 6 when rolling 3 dice.

## How many ways can you roll 11 with 3 dice?

so there are 63=216 possible outcomes.
