Given 5 dice rolls that are independent from each other, what is the probability for the following results? (order of roll does not matter)

1. all 5 dice rolls are the same

2. 4 dice rolls are the same

3. the dice rolls are in sequence (1-5 or 2-6) -order does not matter

4. two pairs of dice are the same (ex: 1 1 4 4 3)

5. the result is one pair and the other three are the same (ex: 1 1 1 6 6)

So far, my understanding of the problem has been the ff:

1. 1/6^5

2. 150/6^5

3.(5!+5!)/6^5

4. 1800/6^5

5. 300/6^5

Is this correct?
