Talking

This just came up.

Six dice are thrown. The probability of getting 2 threes and 4 fours is...

a) 1 in 6

b) 1 in 36

c) 1 in 720

d) 1 in 46656

e) none of the above

If you know the answer then show your work and you might win a prize. Just guessing doesn't count.

Actually the odds are 50:50.

Either you get that combination, or you don't!
