## What is the probability of getting 5 when a die is thrown?

Solution: Total number of outcomes when die is thrown twice = 6 × 6 = 36. The probability that 5 will not come up either time is 25/36 and the probability that 5 will come up is **11/36**. Check out more about terms of probability.

## What is the probability of rolling a 5 then a 2?

There is a 16 probability of getting a 2 on the first roll and **a 16 probability** of getting a 5 on the second roll.

## What is the probability of getting 5?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

3 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

## What is the probability of getting 1 and 5 If a dice is thrown once?

So they are mutually exclusive events, therefore their probabilities add to 1. By symmetry we expect that each face is equally likely to appear and so each has probability = **1/6**. The outcome of a 5 is one of those events and so has probability = 1/6 of appearing.

## What are the odds of rolling a 6 with 2 dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

3 | 2 | 5.56% |

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

6 | 5 |
13.89% |

## What are the odds of rolling 5 1s in a row?

The probability is **1216 chance**, which is approximately a 0.46% chance.

## What is the probability of rolling an odd number?

The probability when rolling a regular six-sided dice that the score is an odd number is **three-sixths or three out of six**.

## What is the probability of rolling a 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**.

## What is the probability of rolling a 1 and then a 2?

The probability of rolling a 1 is **1/6**, the probability of rolling a 2 is 1/6, and so on.
