I think in this case, we are dealing with a pool of 11 dice instead of
10, as
Beam A could miss totally (1-3 on the d6) and then Beam B hits with a 6
and so
on for a total of 10 dice from B alone.  Together that is 11 dice, so
the
probability we are looking for is the chance to get 19 points of damage
with a
pool of 11 dice.
