**drwls**, Friday, March 20, 2009 at 4:27amYour statements or directions are all unclear about whether you are rolling one or two dice. Are you looking for a total of three on two dice or a "3" on one of the dice? The singular form of "dice" is "die", in case you are throwing only one.

Two dice will have two faces up, but you say "the face of the dice", mixing singular and plural in a confusing way.

If you are throwing one only die, it would be better to say:

Roll a die. If you get 3 on the face of the die, move forward for 3 spaces.

Ｓｔａｔｉｓｔｉｃｓ - You are playing a board game in which severity of a plenty is determined by rolling three dice and adding spots on the up-face. The dice are all balanced so that each face is equally likely, and the three dice fall independently. If X1, X2, and X3 are the number of spots on the up-face of the three dice, then X= X1+X2+X3. Use this fact to find the mean μx and the standard deviation σx without finding the distribution of of X. (Start with the distribution of each of the Xi.)
