Rolling Dice (32SII program is also included here)
One way to simulate a pair of dice being thrown is to generate two random integers between 1 through 6. The integers are either shown as a pair or vector of integers. For calculators that do not have a list capacity or want a more compact representation, the program for the HP 32S II (which can easily apply almost to any other programming calculator), in the format A.0B, where A is one die and B is the other. For example, 3.06 represents a 3 and a 6 being thrown.

The formula would be: RandInt(1,6) + RandInt(1,6)/100

We can also use the Unicode representation of dice.

⚀ 9856 2680
⚁ 9857 2681
⚂ 9858 2682
⚃ 9859 2683
⚄ 9860 2684
⚅ 9861 2685

Unicode characters need to be in strings. The HP Prime program RDICE returns a list, the roll in compact format, along with the Unicode representation. This is only one of many ways to do it.

An example output of RDICE is {4.02, “⚃”, “⚁”}
