"Isn't one coin and three di..."

ngIf: \!revealed One die, one digit wheel, and 3 coins let you send the message at a cost of only $~$\\log\_2(6) + \\log\_2(10) + 3\\log\_2(2) \\approx 8.9$~$ coins\.

Isn't one coin and three dice better?

$~$2*3^6 = 432,$~$ and $~$\log_2(2) + 3*\log_2(6) \approx 8.75$~$

yep, nice catch.
