What is the probability that exactly two of the six numbers appear on the top face in the six throws of an unbiased dice?

Ans: total ways = 6^6
Selecting any 2 number : 6c2
Lets say two numbers selected be : a and b out of 6, then in 6 rolls:
Case 1: a,a,a,a,a,b or b,b,b,b,b,a
No of Ways- 2*6!/5!

Case 2: a,a,a,a,b,b or b,b,b,b,a,a
No of Ways- 2*6!/4!*2!

Case 3: a,a,a,b,b,b
No of Ways- 6!/3!*3!

Totalling we get : 62

Ans : 6c2*62/6^6 = 155/6^5
