Hello,

I would like to ask for some help. I have some general knowledge of the solver and formulas but I am stumped on how (or if) to create a simple dice rolling equation.

I am trying to create a solver function that will re-create the following.

NUM DICE? = D

HIT MIN? = H

Number of hits = X

So if I needed to recreate the rolling of 48 dice and show how many results are 5 and 6 cumulatively. or 32 dice and how many results are 4, 5 and 6 cumulatively.

I saw a post from a guy that has done the on a TI-82. He used this formula.

--clear the screen

0->X

--the variable x gets reset to 0, x will hold the # of successful hits

Input ("Num Dice? ", D)

--Prompts for # of dice to roll, stores the value in variable D

Input ("Hit Min? ", H)

--Prompts for Minimum number needed for a succesful hit, usually 4,5, or 6, and stores in Variable H)

For (I,1,D,1)

--This is a loop, the Variable I is our incrememted by 1 each time through until it is equal to D, which is the # of dice rolls

If ((int (rand*6+1)>=H)

--if the randomly generated number of 1-6 is greater than variable H, your minimum hit #, then...

X+1->X

--X, your hit count variable, gets incremented by 1

END

--end the loop

Disp X

--print out the number of hits
