In math, when rolling a die, do you think everyone will have the same results, why or why not

Report as

When you roll a single die, there are 6 possible ways it can end up, so it's impossible for everyone to have the same results. The result of a die roll is also determined by the way it is thrown.

Thank you--I knew the answer was no, but wasn't quite sure how to explain why. :)

Sorry but that is wrong.

No because people do not have the same rolling of die motion with their hands.

Really now? Well, I think you are wrong.

If 2 people roll a die there are 36 possible outcomes. They are
1,1. 1,2. 2,1. 2,2. 1,3. 3,1. 2,3. 3,2 3,3. 1,4. 4,1. 2,4. 4,2. 3,4. 4,3. 4,4
1,5. 5,1. 2,5. 5,2. 3,5. 5,3. 4,5. 5,4.
5,5. 1,6. 6,1. 2,6. 6,2. 3,6. 6,3. 4,6.
6,4. 5,6. 6,5. 6,6
You can see that 6 of these outcomes
are the same numbers. They are
1,1. 2,2. 3,3. 4,4. 5,5. 6,6.
Therefore in 6 out of 36 times the outcomes are the same.
6/36 = 1/6.

Well how is my answer wrong? If you were SO smart, you would realize that there are OBVIOUSLY more than ONE conclusions to problems...

Here's another way of looking at it.
Say 7 people roll a die. 2 people HAVE to roll the same number. Because there are only 6 different numbers possible. It doesn't matter what the hand motion is.

It IS possible for everyone to have the same result. But it is unlikely.
For 2 people, Probability = 1/6
