## how to randomize sets in math equations ?

for example i have this :
F={1,2,3,4,5}
so F=1,2,3,4,5
but how to randomize the set ?
i want to say F=5,3,4,2,1 or 2,3,1,4,5 or ...

do i have to say like this? :
F=(1)/(2)/(3)/(4)/(5)

 i want to explain 2 Dice=F the F is random of this set : {1,2,3,4,5,6} what is the right way to say it ? is this right ? F={(1.2.3.4.5.6)} ???

Then all you're saying is that the roll of a die is a random variable that can take on values from 1 to 6.
 so F={(1.2.3.4.5.6)} is the right format to say that ? the "." do the random explanation ?

A set, like {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}, has no specific order. Neither does it imply anything about relative probabilities. A probability space is more than just the set of possibilities. If you mean them to be equally likely you should say so.
Btw 'random' does not mean equally likely. It just means not deterministic.
 ok so F={1,2,3,4,5,6} is same as F={(1.2.3.4.5.6)} ? update: let me correct myself. so if F={1,2,3} then F can equal (123) or (132) or (213) or ... right ?

No, it's not the same. Furthermore, I have not a single idea what you mean with that second notation.

What are you trying to do??
