## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 4 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Now we can see that the sum 4 will be rolled with probability **3/36 = 1/12**, and the sum 5 with probability 4/36 = 1/9.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of two on a standard pair of six sided dice?

The probability of rolling a 2 on a 6-sided dice is 16 . The probability of rolling two 2s on two 6-sided die is, by the multiplication principle, 16×16=**136** .

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 8 or 6 on a pair of number cubes?

Question 970024: What is the probability of rolling a sum of 8 or 6 on a pair of number cubes? Each cube has 6 sides, so there are **(6 x 6=36) 36 possible combinations**. So there are 10 ways to roll either a 6 or an 8.

## What is the probability of not getting a sum of 8 if a pair of dice is rolled?

The probability of any number occurring is 1 in 36 or 1 / 36. Then the probability an 8 will not occur is: **1 – 5 / 36 or 31 / 36**.

## What is the most common number to roll with 1 dice?

For four six-sided dice, the most common roll is **14**, with probability 73/648; and the least common rolls are 4 and 24, both with probability 1/1296. , 2, 3, and 4 dice. They can be seen to approach a normal distribution as the number of dice is increased.
