(For convenience, you may assume that the dice are all different colors.)

Suppose you roll the 5 dice seeking to get as many sixes as possible. how many ways can you get exactly 3 sixes on the first roll?

How would I do this? Factorials?

Please help.

How many ways can you get at least 3 sixes on the first roll?

Suppose you only got 1 six on the first roll so you keep it and roll the remaning 4 dice. how many ways can you get at least one six on the last roll?

Please help. is it factorials?
