## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 2 with two 6 sided dice?

The probability of rolling a 2 on a 6-sided dice is 16 . The probability of rolling two 2s on two 6-sided die is, by the multiplication principle, 16×16=**136** .

## When a pair of dice is rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of 10 or a pair of odd number?

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**.

## What is the probability that when two dice are rolled the sum of the numbers on the two dice is 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 dice are thrown the total outcomes are?

Note that there are **36 possibilities** for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?

The probability of winning on the first roll is the probability of rolling 7 or 11, which is 1/6 plus 1/18, which equals to **2/9**. Suppose we roll 4 on the first roll (the probability of rolling 4 is 1/12). On each successive roll the probability of rolling 7 is 1/6 and the probability of rolling 4 is 1/12.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum less than 10?

so I wrote out all the possabilities of combinations of 10 or higher. 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.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 13 when rolling a pair of dice?

Probability of a sum of 13: 21/216 = **9.7%**
