    According to the actual dice rules for DnD - yes. See posts #5, #12 and the wikipedia link.

  11. VS 2019 Re: Cannot debug the calculation. been trying for 2 hours

    This is very in-efficient. From one iteration to the next, new_numerator = old_numerator * x * x

    The 2 while loops should be for loops. You then don't need i and x defined outside of the loop.
