I know it is not coding but i was hoping you could help Trouble with math


  • If you roll a 6-sided die 6 times, what is the best prediction possible for the number of times you will roll a six?



  • Hey Boonie!

    Not sure what they mean by 'best' prediction but every time you roll a die you get a 1 in 6 (or 1/6) chance that you roll a six. So if you roll it 6 times you just have to multiple 1/6 by 6 So

    1/6 * 6 = 1
    

    So my guess would be 1. I hope that helps boonie.
