Date: 4/25/96 at 10:49:39 From: David Charlton Subject: Math I have an octahedron-what's the probability I'll roll a seven?
Date: 7/19/96 at 16:36:57 From: Doctor Patrick Subject: Re: Math If you are using an octahedron - an 8 sided die - there will be 8 possible outcomes to your roll, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Since there is one 7 in that list the chance of rolling it is 1/8. -Doctor Patrick, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
