## When two dice are rolled what is the probability that the sum is either 7 or 11?

The probability is **25%** .

## 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**.

## When 2 dice are rolled find the probability of getting a sum of 8?

Therefore theprobability that we get the sum as8 when two dice are thrown is **5/36**.

## When two dice are rolled the number of outcomes of getting the sum of the faces equal to 8 is?

So the probability is the sum of the five individual probabilities which is 5*(1/36)= 5/36. Therefore the probability that we get the sum as 8 when two dice are thrown is **5/36**.

## What is the probability of getting an even number?

Answer: The probability of getting an even number on the first side when a pair of dice is thrown once is **1/2**.

## 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 getting a number less than 7?

Answer: the probability of getting a number less than 7 in a throw of dice is **1**.
