## What is the probability of getting both the numbers same when 2 dice are thrown at the same time proper working is required?

When two dice are drawn there will be 36 combinations. However, for getting the same number on both die, there will be 6 possibilities which are (1,1),(2,2),(3,3),(4,4),(5,5) and (6,6). Hence, the required probability is 6/36 = 1/6.

## What are the total possible outcomes when two dice are thrown together?

We have to calculate the probability of each of the events when two dice are thrown. We know that the total number of possible outcomes when two dice are thrown is =6×6=36. We know that the probability of any event is the ratio of the number of favourable outcomes and the number of possible outcomes.
