The probability of a double-six in one throw of two die is 1/36 or 0.028.

If I threw a pair of die a hundred times would 3 (0.028 * 100) be

1. The amount of times (3) I would get a double-six

OR

1. The probability (3%) of getting a double-six on all throws.

I have a feeling the correct answer is number 1, because intuitively the chance of getting a double six every time on a hundred throws seems to be a lot lower than 3%.

Please explain, as simply as you can, which is the correct understanding and why?

## 1 answer to this question.

The chance of not getting a double six in a single throw (all but one outcome divided by all outcomes):

`35/36`

The chances of not getting a double six in k throws

`(35/36)**k /* where ** is raised to the k-th power */`

The likelihood of at least one double six being thrown in k throws

`P(k) = 1 - (35/36)**k`

if k ==100 We've got

` P(100) == 0.94022021`
