When rolling a pair of dice What is the probability of getting doubles or a sum of 4?

## What is the probability of getting doubles three times in a row when rolling 2 dice?

So on any turn, the probability of rolling a double is 6/36 = 1/6. Now each roll of the dice is independent. So the probability that any given turn will result in the rolling of doubles three times in a row is (1/6) x (1/6) x (1/6) = 1/216. This is approximately **0.46%**.

## What is the probability of rolling a 7 with 2 dice?

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

6 | 5 | 13.89% |

7 | 6 |
16.67% |

## What is the chance of rolling a total of 4 with 2 six sided dice?

The following table shows the probabilities for rolling a certain number with a two-dice roll.

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table.

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

6 | 5/36 (13.889%) |

7 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

## What are the outcomes of rolling 2 dice?

Note that there are **36 possibilities for (a,b)**. This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## What are the odds of rolling a double 1?

The chances of rolling doubles with a single toss of a pair of dice is **1 in 6**. People want to believe it’s 1 in 36, but that’s only if you specify which pair of doubles must be thrown.

## What is the probability of rolling two sixes?

Thus only one of the 36 possible outcomes has a 6 on both dice and hence the probability of two sixes will be 1 over 36, or **1/36**.
