I am new here! I need some help!

A regular dice has six faces, with numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. A typical roll of a dice will land on one of the 6 faces, and the number that is displayed can be considered as output for that throw. Construct a visual outcome for 100, 1000, 10000, and million throws of a regular dice. Now, consider a loaded dice. This particular dice is likely to land on a face with even number greater than 3, thrice as more as any other number. Construct a visual outcome for the same number of throws for this loaded dice. Compare the two outputs by organizing them neatly using GraphicsGrid

I am only 14 years old. So i am having a hard time with this one!

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry. Everything i have done up until this point has been basic math! list1=List[1,2,3,4,5,6] I assume the first part would be easy. RandomVariate[List1] $\endgroup$ – user38249 Mar 3 '16 at 14:28

    $\begingroup$ Show us what you have tried, and we can help you out. And being 14 isn't a good excuse for not trying. This kid made a voice activated personal assistant with a Raspberry Pi, and he's only 13. $\endgroup$ – bobthechemist Mar 3 '16 at 14:28
  • $\begingroup$ But I am not exactly sure how to run the same Randomizer 100, 1000, and 10000 times. Without just finding the probability and multiplying it! And it becomes more of a headeache when it occurs more often! $\endgroup$ – user38249 Mar 3 '16 at 14:30

Not an answer, because you need to come up with the answer yourself. Some ideas, however.

First, have a look at Range, which will help you in generating the list of numbers you need.

Second, look at RandomChoice instead of RandomVariate. The former gives you the opportunity to choose multiple numbers at a time.

Third, look at Histogram, which will help you get a visualization of your output.

Once you get to this point, you should be able to answer most of the parts of your own question. The "weighted die" part can be simulated with options found in the RandomChoice documentation, but I would suggest you get your visualizations for the unweighted die first.
