Description
The third gear dice for Formula Dé is a eight sided die labeled 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8.
This is the Formula Dé's most complex die to reproduce. The expression used does as follow:
 We start with a d4 multiplied by 1.3 (1.3, 2.6, 3.9, 5.2)
 Add 3.4 to this value (4.7, 6, 7.3, 8.6)
 Round down (4, 6, 7, 8)
 Take the larger value between the one just computed and 1d2+3 (4,5).
The last step mean that if the computed value is 6, 7 o 8, it does not change. If the first outcome is 4, it can become 4 or 5.
So we have 1 chance out of 8 to obtain 4 or 5, and 1 chance out of 4 to obtain 6, 7 or 8, as required by the third gear die.
