We roll five standard dice (sides numbered 1 to 6) and write down the sum of the top three i.e. of the 3 highest values.
What is the probability to get 15 ?
(In reply to analytical attempt at it
by Vishal Gupta)
Total possible outcomes = 6^5 yes
15 can be made with 6,6,3 or 6,5,4 or 5,5,5 yes
6,6,3 can be made in 130 ways. no
your approach is ok , just check the rest and COUNT THEM SLOWLY
