When the number of rolls is increased, the results of a random experiment are seen to approach the theoretical distribution. Theoretical probabilities for obtaining a given number of sixes when multiple dice are rolled are given by a binomial distribution with parameters

and 1/6, where

is the number of fair dice. The maximum of this distribution is at

, which is the most likely number of sixes. The probability of a particular sum of

dice is somewhat more cumbersome to compute. According to the central limit theorem, as the number of dice per roll is increased, the theoretical probabilities approach the normal distribution. In this Demonstration, however, instead of using the normal approximation, the theoretical probability of obtaining

as the sum of the roll of

dice is computed exactly as the coefficient of

in

, divided by

. The expected value of the total of

dice is

and the distribution is symmetric about the expectation.
