Probabilty of getting a 6 is 1/6 and not getting a six is 5/6

Lets take the probability of one case when Auston gets a six and other two do not: 1/6*5/6*5/6 = 25/216

We have three such cases so prob = 25/216*3 = 25/72

Don't we have more than three cases? There should be six cases where it's possible:

Abc
Acb
aBc
cBa
abC
baC

Can combinations be used to solve this problem?
