    P(6 a / a / a / a / a / ) = P(6)*P(\)^5, where / means not a 6

    P(6) = 1/6; P(/) = 5/6

    exactly one: \[\dbinom{6}{1}\frac{1}{6}\times (\frac{5}{6})^5\]

    since 6 choose 1 is 6, this answer is really \[(\frac{5}{6})^5\]

    one or more throws means not no sixes. the probability you get no sixes is \[(\frac{5}{6})^6\] so your answer is \[1-(\frac{5}{6})^6\]
