Delving Deeper: Rolling the Dice

Jonathan D. Baker Edited by Maurice Burke, J. Kevin Colligan, Maria Fung, and Jeffrey J. Wanko 

March 2013, Volume 106, Issue 7, Page 551

Abstract:
The outcome distribution for rolling a single die is horizontal; for rolling a pair of dice it is a triangle. What happens when more than two dice are rolled? What happens when the die has other than six sides? These and other questions are answered in an accessible and useful treatise.
