  1. First number takes only 1 throw
  2. Second number takes 6/5 throws (six throws, expect that 5 will be different from first.
  3. Third number requires 6/4 throws (same reasoning)
  4. Fourth number takes 6/3 throws (ditto)
  5. Fifth number takes 6/2 throws
  6. Sixth number takes 6 throws.

Add them up. 14.7 throws.

But the average number of throws required to get all six is less than that, 13 and change.
