Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P(6 a / a / a / a / a / ) = P(6)*P(\)^5, where / means not a 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 6 choose 1 is 6, this answer is really \[(\frac{5}{6})^5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one or more throws means not no sixes. the probability you get no sixes is \[(\frac{5}{6})^6\] so your answer is \[1(\frac{5}{6})^6\]
