**36 possibilities.

In 6 of them, the difference is 0.

In 10 of them, the difference is 1.

In 8 of them, the difference is 2.

In 6 of them, the difference is 3.

In 4 of them, the difference is 4.

In 2 of them, the difference is 5.

(6*0 + 10*1 + 8*2 + 6*3 + 4*4 + 2*5)/36 = 70/36

Yep, 1.9444...

N dice? Too much work for my brain right now.

**slight flaw in that.

In some cases the red is greater in some the blue is greater; so you have two questions:

What is the absolute difference?

**What is the difference of red with respect to blue?**
In 1 of them, the difference is -5

In 2 of them, the difference is -4

In 3 of them, the difference is -3

In 4 of them, the difference is -2

In 5 of them, the difference is -1

In 6 of them, the difference is 0.

In 5 of them, the difference is 1.

In 4 of them, the difference is 2.

In 5 of them, the difference is 3.

In 2 of them, the difference is 4.

In 1 of them, the difference is 5.

**As for two dice;
**

relative difference gives the same results
**Absolut diference gives:**
In 146 cases, the diffeence is 0

In 280 cases, the diffeence is 1

In 250 cases, the diffeence is 2

In 208 cases, the diffeence is 3

In 160 cases, the diffeence is 4

In 112 cases, the diffeence is 5

In 70 cases, the diffeence is 6

In 40 cases, the diffeence is 7

In 20 cases, the diffeence is 8

In 8 cases, the diffeence is 9

In 2 cases, the diffeence is 10
