Dice Graph

The graph tool is used to plot the probability curve of dice sets. It accomplishes this by generating a large number of dice rolls and measuring the distribution of results.

Launch the graph tool from the main screen through your device's menu key, then select More and then Dice Graph to generate a graph for the currently active dice set. Or, select Dice Graph Compare to plot multiple dice sets on the same graph. Each dice set will be drawn with a separate color. While in the graph screen, compare selection screen can also be opened through an option in the menu key or by hitting the search key.

In the graph, the y-axis represents the dice results and the x-axis represents the probability of those results.
Each dice set will be also have several values displayed:

The smallest result possible.
The largest result possible.
The mathematical average roll.
Note that because of DiceCaddy's simulation method, this number will usually be off by a few decimal points of the true, mathematical value.
The dice result that has the highest probability of occurring, or in other words the result that occurred most often in the randomly generated set (also known as the "mode" in statistics terms).
In normal dice sets with a uniform bell curve, this number should be the same as the average. In more complex configurations, these numbers may differ.
The probability of this particular result occurring. You may touch the graph to select a particular result and view its odds. You may also use your device's d-pad or trackball to move the cursor left or right.
The probability of hitting this target number or higher.

Through the menu, you may go to Change Accuracy to control how many random rolls are generated to populate the data set. The larger the sample, the smoother and more accurate the graph will be, at the expense of more time for creation. This setting ranges between roughly 1000 and 25000, and note that this is per dice set (if doing a comparison).
