- I'm trying to learn the basic concepts of calculating probability as it pertains to dice rolling.

Hello,

I am trying to learn the basic concepts of calculating probability as it pertains to dice rolling. I have searched the internet and not been able to figure it out.

If I have a regular 6 sided dice and I want to know the probability of rolling a 3, I know its 1/6 or 16.6%. This is where I get lost. If I add another dice to question. Meaning, with two, 6-sided dice what is the probability of rolling a 3 on either dice or both? My initial thought was it would go to 2/6 or 33%, but if I continue with this thought process and I keep adding dice when I get to 6 dice I'm at 100%, and that doesn't seem right to me.

I'm basically lost on this and have no idea how to even approach this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Frank
