Not quite. Assuming that you take each triad of throws as a unit (i.e. you throw 3 20-sides dice at one time):

The probability of NOT throwing a triple 20 in ONE throw P = 7999/8000
The probability of NOT throwing a triple 20 in TWO throws P2 = (7999/8000)2
...
The probability of NOT throwing a triple 20 in N throws PN = (7999/8000)N

We want to find N for which PN == 0.5, or 0.5 = (7999/8000)N.
Taking the log of both sides, we have log(0.5) = N * log(7999/8000)
N = log(0.5) / log(7999/8000) = 5544.83

After 5545 rolls (16635 individual rolls), your chances are 50% of having thrown three 20s in a single roll.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
