import numpy as np # create 6 sided "die" die_6 = range(1, 7) die_12 = range(1, 13) # set number of rolls num_rolls = 10 # roll the "die" the set amount of times results_1 = np.random.choice(die_6, size = num_rolls, replace = True) results_2 = np.random.choice(die_12, size = num_rolls, replace = True) print(results_1) print(results_2)
