Stats HELP PLEASE

posted by .

The game of Yahtzee is played with five fair six-sided dice. A turn consists of rolling all five dice, selecting the ones you want to keep, re-rolling the rest, and then doing this one more time, if necessary. You need to match certain conditions in order to score points.
(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.
