## What is the probability of rolling a total of 7 with two dice at least once in 10 rolls?

With the help of a calculator we find that we will not get a total of 7 on any of the first 10 rolls approximately 16.15% of the time. This implies that we will get a total of 7 on at least one of the first 10 rolls 100%−16.15%=**83.85%** of the time.

## What is the probability of not getting a 7 when rolling two standard six sided dice?

Probability : Example Question #1

The sample space for rolling two six-sided dice is 36. We can get 7 six different ways: 1,6 2,5 3,4 4,3 5,2 6,1 so the probability of getting a 7 is or . The probability of NOT getting a **7** is . We can add up all the things we want or we can subtract from 1 what we don’t want.

## How many times can you roll a 7?

As the chart shows the closer the total is to 7 the greater is the probability of it being thrown.

…

Probabilities for the two dice.

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

6 | 5 | 13.89% |

7 |
6 |
16.67% |

8 | 5 | 13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

## How many ways can you roll 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.

## What is the probability of rolling 2/3 or 12?
