I saw the puzzle and read thru the Bill Gates link.

I decided start off my attempt by only trying to solve the ones where 3 of the 5 dice came up as the same number. Three of a Kind. Ignore all other rolls and then apply the logic to 2 pairs, 1 pair, etc.

After the 5th occurance of three of a kind, I got it.

Rolls made to get 5 occuances of three of a kind: 30. I know seems like a made up number but that's what it was.

The math was much easier when you go after a subset of the question (i.e. only three of a kind).

I think that way is making it more complicated than it need to be.
