# How to know what is the possible no of combination / possible values

How do we know how many possible combinations are possible for rolling a number for n dice.

For example, getting 240 each time when rolled 6 dice together -  total possible combination - 7776?

The total number of possible combinations when rolling n six-sided dice can be calculated using combinatorics. Each die has six sides, so it can produce six different outcomes (dice numbers 1 through 6).

When you roll n dice, the number of possible combinations can be found by raising the number of sides on each die to the power of the number of dice rolled. In this case,one dice has 6 sides and if you roll n dice then total number of combination is 6^n.

For example, the total possible combinations for rolling 6 six-sided dice is 6^6=46656.

When rolling 6 dice together, the maximum possible sum occurs when all the dice show the outcome of 6. In that case, the sum would be 6+6+6+6+6+6 = 36. It's not possible to achieve a total sum of 240 by rolling 6 dice.
