comment Why does it seem to decrease probability to roll more times?
math.stackexchange.com/questions/185241/… I've read this one too; the OP seems to have my exact difficulty. Is there no quicker formula for this than $60 \choose 1$$(\frac{1}{6})^{1}$$(\frac{5}{6})^{60-1}$$ + $$60 \choose 2$$(\frac{1}{6})^{2}$$(\frac{5}{6})^{60-2}$$ + $$60 \choose 3$$(\frac{1}{6})^{3}$$(\frac{5}{6})^{60-3}... $ up to 9, and then subtract the answer from 1 to get the probability for 10 or more sixes in 60 rolls?

I have noted this in a few older books, some of which should still be accessible to me... I'll have to find some again. Great question!
