8 |
5 |
13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 8 in rolling two dice?

Therefore theprobability that we get the sum as8 when two dice are thrown is **5/36**.

## How many ways can you roll an 8?

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

Outcome | List of Combinations | Total |
---|---|---|

7 | 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, 4+3, 5+2, 6+1 | 6 |

8 | 2+6, 3+5, 4+4, 5+3, 6+2 |
5 |

9 | 3+6, 4+5, 5+4, 6+3 | 4 |

10 | 4+6, 5+5, 6+4 | 3 |

## How many ways can you get an odd sum when two distinguishable dice are rolled?

Solution. Out of 36 possible rolls, the ones that the sum of the dice is even are those in which both dice are either even or odd. There are 3 odd numbers on the first die, and for each of these, there are 3 odds on the second – resulting in **9 possible odd/odd combinations**.

## What is the ratio of rolling a 2 to rolling a 5?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 2/36 (5.556%) |

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

## How many outcomes are possible with 2 dice?

When two dice are rolled, there are now **36 different** and unique ways the dice can come up. This figure is arrived at by multiplying the number of ways the first die can come up (six) by the number of ways the second die can come up (six).

## What is the probability of getting an odd sum when two fair dice are thrown?

The odds of rolling one five from two dice rolls is 136. The odds of rolling an odd number from the sum of two rolls requires that we roll one even number from one die and an odd number from another die. The odds of this happening are **12**.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 13 when two fair dice are rolled?

If we’re talking about standard number cubes, then the maximum answer possible is 12 (=6+6) . Therefore, all possible rolls are less than 13, giving a probability of **100%**.

## 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**.
