Abstract

In this presentation we will look at the distribution of non-standard dice rolls. That is, the probability of reaching a particular number and how to find that probability. We will do this by recursion where we add up all the number of ways to find a certain number on one die, then the 'left-over' total on the remaining dice, and add those terms. Then, we will see how two other methods, one using counting principles of combinatorics and one using generating functions, give the same result.
