What Does a Yahtzee Full House Mean?

According to HowStuffWorks, a complete house in Yahtzee is made up of three of any number and two of any other number. This roll of the dice results in a 25-point total.

According to Yahtzee rules, the full house must consist of three dice displaying one number and two dice showing another number. The full house in Yahtzee does not depend on the value of the numbers appearing on the dice, in contrast to other scoring combinations of dice.

Cornell University’s mathematics department claims that this fact may have an impact on the optimal course of action when a player rolls a full house.
