High Rollers (Posted on 2004-12-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
If I rolled n fair six-sided dice rolled simultaneously, what's the expected value (in terms of n) of the highest valued die?

(Note: "expected value" refers to the number you would expect to get if you ran this simulation many times and averaged the results.)
