To find the probability of rolling 2 sixes with 3 dice, you can use the combination formula:

Number of favorable outcomes / Total number of outcomes

Number of favorable outcomes:

- There are 3 dice rolls, and you want exactly 2 sixes. The third die can be any number other than six. So, you have C(3,2) * 1 * 5 = 3 * 5 = 15 favorable outcomes.

Total number of outcomes:

- Each die has 6 possible outcomes, so for 3 dice, there are 6^3 = 216 total outcomes.

Probability = Number of favorable outcomes / Total number of outcomes Probability = 15 / 216 Probability ≈ 0.0694 or about 6.94%.
