Couple questions:

How to calculate the expected value of multiple exploding dice when only keeping the highest? (eg: roll 4d6, keep the best)

Also, how to calculate the probability of hitting a particular number with a given set of exploding dice?

]]>What if i have a system that counts 4-6 as a success and a 3 and below as a failure, with 6 exploding endlessly as long as 6s are rolled , how would i calculate the probability of a number of successes on a given a number of dice? ]]>

To “increase by a factor of X” means to multiply by X.

It’s a weird little quirk of the English language when dealing with math written out in words.

]]>regular exploded n-sided die = regular die average + increase = ((n + 1) ÷ 2) + (n ÷ (n − 1))

If I am wrong, please explain why, as my algebra skills have …waned through lack of use. In advance, thank you for your kind replies.
