Throwing n dice
Previous Up


Throw n dice together, repeatedly.

You will build up the measure of probability distribution for obtaining a given number of successes (6s) in a throw of dice.

Again, as with coin tossing, as the number of throws N becomes very large ( ), the sample (measured) distribution tends to the theoretical binomial distribution for p = 1/6 and the particular value of n.
