Yes, i meant the 64 outcomes of the die roll of a six-sided die. Can you help me obtain this using the laws of probability?

If you roll

3 dice gets you 216.

I don't know any way of getting 64.

Sure it was 6-siders?

Even/odd sequence after 6 rolls?I don't know any way of getting 64.

Edit: Turning that to a serious response, I can generate 64 equiprobable outcomes in 760/243 ≈ 3.13 fair die rolls on average. Is a better result possible? It can't be done with two rolls, since 6^2 = 36 < 64. It can't always be done in 3 rolls, since 6^3 = 216 is not divisible by 64 so some outcomes would be more likely than others.
