**Let"simagine you room playing a game which uses dice. You are around to rollthree of them. You need to roll at least one 6. A 6 showing up onany one (or more) the the three dice will win the video game for you!

Ns don"t care how numerous dice friend roll, the possibilities of rollinga 6 will never ever be 100%.** **Whenyou roll simply one die, there room six various ways the die deserve to land,as shown by the complying with graphic:** |
