I am involved with a Rotary Club which uses a dice game to raise funds at various events. We want to look carefully at the probabilities of throwing dice. Can you tell me please in very basic layman's terms the odds on the same number being thrown on 4 out of 7 dice in one throw (which number doesn't matter). Then for 5, 6 and 7 the same, and finally 7 sixes.

We would like to use the formula then to look also at changing the number of dice and the number of the same digit required e.g. 5 out of 8 dice. Can you help please in real layman's terms? There are no mathematicians amongst us!

Many thanks in advance

Peter
