## What is a 6-sided die?

A six-sided die is **the standard die with a cubic shape**. Each face has a different value, typically from 1 to 6. A fair 6-sided die gives you a ** ^{1}/_{6}** (or ca.

**16.7%**) probability of rolling any of its numbers.

## How to use 6 sided dice probability calculator?

To find any of the probabilities with our 6-sided dice probability calculator, follow these steps:

**Select the number of dice**you want to roll.**Choose the game condition**. You can switch between rolling a specific value, checking if the sum of all dice is equal/higher/smaller than a given target value, or a few others.- For some options, you may need to type which face numbers meet the winning conditions.
- That's all! The resulting probability will display at the bottom.

## FAQ

### How do I calculate the probability of rolling 4 or higher with three dice?

To find the probability of rolling 4 or higher using three 6-sided dice:

- Estimate the wanted probability for a single die. Three results succeed (4, 5, 6), and three fail (1, 2, 3), so the probability for a single die is
.^{1}/_{2} **Multiply**the auxiliary probabilities (each for a separate die):.^{1}/_{2}×^{1}/_{2}×^{1}/_{2}- The result equals
or^{1}/_{8}**12.5%**.

### What does 2d6 probability mean?

**2d6 stands for rolling two cubic (6-sided) dice**. We usually use this setup to get the sum from both dice. **The most likely sum is 7** (the probability equals **16.7%**). **The least likely sums** are **2** or **12** (**2.78%** each).

### What is the most likely sum of rolling three dice?

**10 or 11**. Out of the total of **216 rolling possibilities** (permutations with repetitions), there are precisely **57 sets that sum up to 10** and the same number which sum up to **11**. The probability of rolling 10 or 11 as the sum of three dice is **12.5%** (for each option).
