I know how to calculate the probability of getting a 1 and then 2 or 1 and 1 and etc, that's just 1/6 * 1/6(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now what if I ask, what is the chance of getting a 6 from 3 rolls? Let's say I roll the dice 3 times and all I want is just a 6 from any one of these roll? I just want one 6 from any roll, I don't care if it comes in the first or second or third roll.

I might hear an answer 1/6 , but what if I decided to roll this dice infinitely many times and from that, the probability of getting a 6 is definitely 100%, considering it's a fair dice.

So does rolling a dice extra time will add to the probability of getting a desired number?
