In this experiment, six may come up on the first throw, the second throw, the third throw and so on till six is obtained.
Hence, the sample space of this experiment is given by

S = {6, (1, 6), (2, 6), (3, 6), (4, 6), (5, 6), (1, 1, 6), (1, 2, 6), … , (1, 5, 6), (2, 1, 6), (2, 2, 6), … , (2, 5, 6), … ,(5, 1, 6), (5, 2, 6), …}
