What is the probability that when we roll four fair 6-sided dice, they won't all show the same number?

The probability of rolling the same number on all 4 dice is \(6 \times ({1 \over 6})^4 = {1 \over 216}\). There are 6 numbers to choose from, and the 4 dice must roll that 1 number. 

 

So, if the probability of failing is \({1 \over 216}\), what must the probability of success be, knowing the sum of the probability of failing, and the probability of succeeding is always equal to 1?
