## What is the probability that the sum of the numbers rolled is 6?

Probability of a sum of 6: 10/216 = **4.6%** Probability of a sum of 7: 15/216 = 7.0% Probability of a sum of 8: 21/216 = 9.7%

## What is the probability of 2 6?

So to get two 6s when rolling two dice, probability = 1/6 × 1/6 = 1/36 = 1 ÷ 36 = 0.0278, or **2.78 percent**.

## What is the ratio of rolling a 2 to rolling a 5?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 2/36 (5.556%) |

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

## When two dice are tossed asynchronously What is the probability of getting the sum of 6?

Therefore probability of getting sum 6= **5/36**.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6?

Each dice has six combinations which are independent. Therefore the number of possible outcomes will be 6*6 = 36. The probability of rolling a pair of dice whose numbers add to 5 is **4/36 = 1/9**.
