Warning serious NOOB alert

Say, I have a die that is 19 times as likely to produce a six as a one, because it has been tampered with.
When I throw this die 60 times the expected versus observed frequencies of the six possible outcomes are:

1: 10, 1<br/>
2: 10, 10<br/>
3: 10, 10<br/>
4: 10, 10<br/>
5: 10, 10<br/>
6: 10: 19

I want to feed this expected-observed pairs to an algorithm to determine how likely it is that the die indeed has been tampered with.

When I enter the value pairs on this website it calculates a Chi square value of 16.2 and a P value of 0.00629567, indicating that it is very unlikely that the observed results are in accordance with the expected distrbution of the values one to six.

I want to calculate the P value using numerics, but although I can find a ChiSquared class I cannot find how to feed the expected-observed value pairs to it in order te get the P value.

How can it be done?

Thanks for you patience beforehand :-)
