http://lists.csua.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gzg-lSo you are saying
if I roll two 6s and a 3 on one die and a
7 6s and a 4 this combination doesn't count as a possible
combination?
You are starting from the assumption that you can roll a handful of dice
and get the correct number of combinations. You need to include all
possible
combinations.
