---|---|---|

3 | 2 | 5.56% |

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

6 | 5 |

## When two dice are rolled simultaneously find the probability of getting a total less than 5?

(i) Getting a total of less than 5: Let A be the event of getting the sum of two numbers is less than 5. = 6. = **1/6**.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 when rolling two dice?

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**.

## What is the probability of getting a 5 a 6 or a 7 in a single throw of a pair of dice?

If you want the probabilities of rolling a set of numbers (e.g. a 4 and 7, or 5 and 6), add the probabilities from the table together.

…

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table.

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

6 | 5/36 (13.889%) |

7 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 6 when a pair of dice is rolled?

Total number of outcomes is 36 as there are 2 dices. [ {1,5} {2,4} {3,3} {4,2} { 5,1} ]. Therefore probability of getting sum 6= **5/36**.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 6 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Assuming we have a standard six-sided die, the odds of rolling a particular value are **1/6**. There is an equal probability of rolling each of the numbers 1-6.

…

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

Outcome | Probability |
---|---|

4 | 3/36 = 8.33% |

5 | 4/36 = 11.11% |

6 | 5/36 = 13.89% |

7 | 6/36 = 16.67% |

## When two dice are rolled I find the probability of getting a total not less than 10?

That totals 8 combination out of 36 that could be ten or higher, so 8/36= 2/9. since I wanted less than ten 1-(2/9) = **7/9** probability of getting less than 10.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of at least 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**.
