Hoping someone can help me figure this out, was trying to work this out with my father in law last night.
Basically what's the probability of rolling a 1 on a dice? 1/6 surely?
Therefore what's the probability of rolling a 1 on a dice if you roll it 6 times? I said it was 1/1 but as he quite rightly pointed out that would be a certainty and it's not a certainty. The only way I can think to explain it is that it is all based on averages, ie if you roll it 6 times then on average you would get a 1 once which would be 1/1 wouldn't it???
