Short-run dice rolling
A small number of die results can have a big spread of relative
frequencies. For example after throwing a die 5 times and getting a 6 three
of those times you might think that the relative frequency of getting 6
equals 3/5 or 0.6. If the die was thrown many more times then the relative
frequency of getting a 6 would come much closer to the true frequency of
However the relative frequencies for getting a particular result with a
die are still much smaller than the relative frequencies for coins, because
with coins there are always only two results anyway.
