Need Help with statistics problem

Use random numbers to stimulate rolling a six sided die 60 times. How many times did you obtain each number from 1 to 6? Are the results what you'd expect?

It looks like this is an exercise involving writing a computer program. Can you do this? Once you have written the program, you need to run it to get the simulation data. Each number (1 through 6) should turn up approximately 10 times, although it would be unusual if they all came out exactly 10 times. Presumably your statistics course should include some standard tests to determine if the simulation results are statistically reasonable.
