## When two dice are rolled is?

Explanation: When two dices are rolled , there are **6×6=36 outcomes** of the type (x,y) , where x is outcome of first dice and y is outcome of second dice. As both x and y can take values from 1 to 6 , there are total 36 outcomes.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability that the sum is 5 or 12?

What’s the probability the sum will be >4 and <**8: 15/36** = 5/12.

## What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?

The probability of winning on the first roll is the probability of rolling 7 or 11, which is 1/6 plus 1/18, which equals to **2/9**. Suppose we roll 4 on the first roll (the probability of rolling 4 is 1/12). On each successive roll the probability of rolling 7 is 1/6 and the probability of rolling 4 is 1/12.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 with 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 two dice are thrown the total outcomes are?

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.

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

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

## How many ways can 2 dice fall?

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.
