# Use simple Math to ace rolling dice

Are the numbers that show up when you roll a dice really random? There’s always someone that seems to have a bit more luck while playing dice than others, but what if we told you that once you get down to the mathematical framework of it, your perspective will change. Dice rolls can be nerve-wracking, and anyone whose winning move depends on a particular number can vouch for it!

“Three… give me a three… I hope I roll three!” We all know that feeling too well!

Don’t we wish we had more control over it? While most folks put it all down to luck, we’d like to introduce you to the concept of probability.

Here’s the thing -- For the throw of a single dice, all outcomes are equally probable. However, when you roll two dice, the different possibilities for the total are not equally probable because there are more ways to get some numbers than others.

There are six ways to get a total of seven but only one way to get two, so the odds of getting a seven are six times more! Similarly, rolling a three is twice as likely as throwing a two because there are two distinguishable ways to get a three and only one way to get a two.

There are rules to luck, not everything is chance to the wise; Luck can be helped by skill.

Three main factors influence whether a dice roll is fair -- First is the dice's geometric shape. The second is the physics of the roll. Third, the surface you are rolling on.

There’s an uncountable number of games out there with varying complexities that all run on the popular 6-sided dice. Make your child predict the outcome of a single dice first and then to a pair of dice. This will make him an expert in two things: Maths & playing Dice!
