If three six faced die each marked with numbers 1 to 6 on six faces, are thrown find the total number of possible outcomes.
We have to find the number of total outcomes when three dices are rolled the outcomes can be different and can be same.
We will use the concept of multiplication because there are three sub jobs dependent on each other and one job is performed one after the other.
The choices of outcomes from one dice are six; there are three dices so choices for each dice will be six.
The number of outcomes which are formed when three dices are rolled one after the other are 6 × 6 × 6 = 63 = 216
