## When you roll two dice there are 36 possible outcomes What is the probability of rolling two dice and the sum is not 7?

For each of the possible outcomes add the numbers on the two dice and count how many times this sum is 7. If you do so you will find that the sum is 7 for 6 of the possible outcomes. Thus the sum is a 7 in 6 of the 36 outcomes and hence the probability of rolling a 7 is **6/36 = 1/6**.

## When two fair dice are rolled There are 36 possible outcomes How many possible outcomes would there be if three fair dice were rolled?

Three or More Dice

For two dice, there are **6 ^{2}** possible outcomes. For three dice, there are 6

^{3}possible outcomes.

## When two balanced dice are rolled There are 36 possible outcomes find the probability that either doubles are rolled or the sum of the dice is 10 group of answer choices?

There are 6 ways we can roll doubles out of a possible 36 rolls (6 x 6), for a probability of **6/36**, or 1/6, on any roll of two fair dice.

## When you roll two dice there are 36 possible combinations?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

10 | 3 | 8.33% |

11 | 2 | 5.56% |

12 | 1 | 2.78% |

Total | 36 | 100% |

## How many ways can 3 dice fall?

Possible Outcomes and Sums

Just as one die has six outcomes and two dice have 6^{2} = 36 outcomes, the probability experiment of rolling three dice has 6^{3} = **216 outcomes**.

## What is the probability of 3 dice?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

3 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

## What are the odds of rolling 2 sixes?

So to get two 6s when rolling two dice, probability = 1/6 × 1/6 = 1/36 = 1 ÷ 36 = 0.0278, or **2.78 percent**.
