Python program to design a dice throw function

An example of random.choice() in Python: Here, we are going to learn how to design a function that can be used as dice throw and the function will return a random value between 1 to 6?

Here, we are going to build a dice() function using python. The program is so simple as an introductory program for defining a function. The function is going to use an inbuilt library naming random. This random library helps us to choose a random value of the variable within the range.

```    random.choice([1,2,3,4,5,6])
```

The above function will choose a random value with a probability of 0.167 each i.e. all are independent to each other which will work as dice.

Code:

```import random

# function definition "dice"
# it will return a random value from 1 to 6
def dice():
return random.choice([1,2,3,4,5,6])

# main code
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
print('DICE THREW : ', dice())
```

Output

```DICE THREW :  5
DICE THREW :  3
DICE THREW :  5
DICE THREW :  4
DICE THREW :  3
DICE THREW :  5
DICE THREW :  3
DICE THREW :  3
DICE THREW :  4
DICE THREW :  6
```
