## What is the probability of getting a sum of 9 from rolling a dice?

The probability of getting 9 as the sum when 2 dice are thrown is 1/9.

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

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%

## 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 that the sum of two dice is 5?
