Why is there a line above the 6 when expressing probability for a die?

P(number between 1 and 6)=16=0.1¯6

It’s a mathematical notation that indicates that the number(s) underneath it are **repeating**.

`1/6`

is equal to `0.166666666...`

, and that `6`

keeps on repeating.

So, instead, we can write 0.1\overline{6}
