There are 6 ways for a seven to show on one roll of two dice. 2,5 5,2 3,4 4,3 6,1 1,6 There are 36 ways for the two dice to show a total of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. There are 36-6 ways to roll not 7. \[\left(\frac{6}{36}\right)^3 \left(\frac{30}{36}\right)^2=\left(\frac{1}{6}\right)^3 \left(\frac{5}{6}\right)^2=\frac{25}{7776}=0.00321502 \]

i was thinking this way there are 6^5 outcomes rolling two dice 5 times 6 of those sum up to 7 in one roll

so i need some combinatorics to finish up this seems that way with your result

@lordofpens total outcomes is not 6! rather it is 6^5 because there are 6 possibilities for one roll and another 6 for the second roll and third and so one is total 6x6x6x6x6=6^5

@robtobey has the same thing although went a different approach, but this probabilities are like that can be done differently :)

When I was much younger I calculated the player's winning percent playing craps in a Nevada gambling hall.

Close to even, but the house is still expected to win. Don't recall the exact number. I believe the players winning percentage is near 48% overall.

i see, that is not a good percentage to play the game hehehe

If you never play, you will never lose. Someone is paying for the Vegas hotels, shows and so forth. I am no longer one of them.
