Rolling 10 six-sided die, what is the probability that exactly 4 will roll a six?

My gut stays that the probability would be [(1/6)^4]x[(5/6)^6], though that doesn't compensate for possible orders.

Where should I start? What are resources online that are likely better than this subpar textbook?

Thank you in advance!
