Hi,

I have a Car racing board game that requires a lot of dice rolling (too much) I do not have the knowledge on how to write a formula for this but I hope I some one here could help (i am sure it is quite simple)I have a HP 19bII

So the input is "Gear" the output is "Spaces".

You get 6 dice, six of which represent gears on your car:
d4 rolls 1 or 2 (first gear)
d6 rolls 2-4 (second gear)
d8 rolls 4-8 (third gear)
d12 rolls 7-12 (fourth gear)
d20 rolls 11-20 (fifth gear)
d30 rolls 21-30 (sixth gear)

I will list out all 6 dice (or gears) and describe how many sides they have plus the results and chances.

Dice/Gear 1
Sides = d4
Range = 1 - 2
Possibility: All 1 in 2

Dice/Gear 2
Sides = d6
Range: 2 - 4
Possibility:
2: 1 in 6---
3: 2 in 6---
4: 3 in 6---

Dice/Gear 3
Sides = d8
Range: 4 - 8
Possibility:
4: 1 in 8---
5: 1 in 8---
6,7,8: 2 in 8---

Dice/Gear 4
Sides = d12
Range: 7 - 12
Possibility:
All - 1 in 6

Dice/Gear 5
Sides = d20
Range: 11 - 20
Possibility:
All: 1 in 10

Dice/Gear 6
Sides = d30
Range: 21 - 30
Possibility:
All: 1 in 10
