this is just a singular di? not a pair of dice? in this case, wouldn't you expect the values to be 1,2,3. none of these values equaling 6 therefore the probability of getting 6 is 0. obviously getting 6 three times is also not possible.

Assuming singular. Although "dice" can mean mean one or more in today's vernacular. Need to know if 6 is one (or more) of the numbers on the three sides. Show as probability of rolling one 6; probability of rolling two 6s - If on none of the sides, then zero; zero. If on two sides, then 66%; 8/27 or 29.6%. If on all three sides then 100%; 100%
