SUBJECT Math dice odds. Can someone calculate the probability

This answer was rated:

SUBJECT: Math dice odds. Can someone calculate the probability with seven 6 sided dice rolling 3 of ONE kind plus 4 of a different kind on a single roll by means the odds of rolling any triple-quad combo?

Hello Customer,

 

Total possible combinations when rolling 7 six-sided dice = 6^7 = 279,936

Total triple-quad combinations = 35 x 6 x 5 = 1050

Odds for any triple-quad combo = 1050:279,936 = 1:266.6

Hope this helps!
