I have been looking this up but am struggling to find a straightforward answer. I am still confused about the process.
So basically what is the probability of rolling at least three of a particular number say X when rolling five dice.
I believe the way to go is work out the probability of rolling 5 of the same number then add it too the probability of 4 of the same number and so on.
so 1/6^5 + 1/6^4 + 1/6^3 + 1/6^2.
Is this correct or am I leaving something out?
I originally phrased my question wrong asking the probability of getting x of the same number.
A good example of what I mean is
The probability of rolling at least three 2's when rolling five dice
