## What is the chance of getting the sum of at least 7 when 2 dice are rolled together?

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 7 on one roll of a die?

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 neither total of 7 nor 11 when the pair of dice is tossed?

Therefore Probablity of sum neither 7 nor 11 is **7/9**.

## When a single die is thrown what is the probability of getting a number that is less than 7?

Answer: the probability of getting a number less than 7 in a throw of dice is **1**.

## 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.
