Three fair dice are rolled.  What is the probability of getting three consecutive numbers?

-5

So we can have these cases

 

123

234

345

456

 

That's 4 cases.

 

HOWEVER we could potentially rearrange them so we have for each 6 types

 

thanks to geno for pointing my error out

 

4*6 =24

 

6*6*6  = 216 is the total amount of cases.

 

You can find the probability.

 

It depends on whether the order counts.

 

if not, then 24 cases. If yes, 4 cases.

 

If you don't understand anything feel free to ask
