Then, you sum all results (161), divide by number of results (36), you'll get 161/36 = 4.472 ... which is the average.
If you want statistical distribution, you count how many times a number is represented and divide by the number of all results(36)
1 ... 1/36 = 2.77%
2 ... 3/36 = 8.33%
3 ... 5/36 = 13.88%
4 ... 7/36 = 19.44%
5 ... 9/36 = 25.00%
6 ...11/36 = 30.55%

Yes

Ha ha, I would think that understanding the odds was always a part of good strategy!

If your opponent things their dice "ought" to roll more 6s, maybe you should check your opponent's dice!

I'm not trying to win. I was explaining to a friend of mine why plasma guns are awful, and when he said they were decent at taking out tanks and characters, I wanted to show him that fusion blasters are way more points efficient.

Plasma Guns can do quite well against tanks, especially using the S8 D2 overcharged profile. They hit harder than Cyclic Ion Blasters. Melta is of course better up close, but I still wouldn't underestimate the power of a Devastator or Hellblaster squad.
