## What is the probability of getting a total of 9 when a pair of dice is rolled?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total Number of combinations Probability
7 6 16.67%
8 5 13.89%
9 4 11.11%
10 3 8.33%

## What is the probability of getting 9 in a single throw of die?

P(of getting a total of 9 or 11) = 1 / 6.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 5 or 9 or 11 when a pair of dice is rolled once?

If we want to calculate the probability of rolling, say, a five, we need to divide the number of ways to get 5 by the total possible combinations of two dice.

What are the most likely outcomes from rolling a pair of dice?

Outcome Probability
8 5/36 = 13.89%
9 4/36 = 11.11%
10 3/36 = 8.33%
11 2/36 = 5.56%

## What is the probability of rolling a total of 2?

Roll a… Probability
2 1/36 (2.778%)
3 2/36 (5.556%)
4 3/36 (8.333%)
5 4/36 (11.111%)

## When two dice are thrown simultaneously What is the probability?

The number of favourable outcomes is the sum of occurrences of all the favourable outcomes. So, the number of favourable outcomes =1+2+4+6+2=15. We know that the number of possible outcomes is 36. Thus, the probability of getting the sum of two numbers as prime numbers is =1536=512.

## When two dice are thrown the sum obtained is 10?

If you consider the chart on the webpage given, there are 36 combination of rolls you can get from two dice. When you consider the sum being 10, there are only 3 combinations. So, the probability of getting a 10 would be 3/36 = 1/12.
