    Dice probability question




    What are the odds of rolling 2d6(2 6-sided dice) three times and getting two 3s? How about rolling 4 times; 5 times?

    I know rolling a 2d6 has a 5.56% chance of landing a 3. How do I calculate the chances of that happening twice in 3/4/5 rolls?

    If you flip a coin do you know how to figure out how the probability of getting 2 heads in 3 flips?
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
