## 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 getting a sum of 8 when rolling a pair of dice Brainly?

So the probability is the sum of the five individual probabilities which is 5*(1/36)= **5/36**. Therefore theprobability that we get the sum as8 when two dice are thrown is 5/36.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7 on a standard pair of six sided 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**.

## What is the probability of obtaining a sum of 6?

Probability of getting a total of 6 = **5/36**.

## What is the probability of rolling a 2 or rolling a 5?

Explanation: There is a **16 probability** of getting a 2 on the first roll and a 16 probability of getting a 5 on the second roll.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of five?

To find the probability determine the number of successful outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes overall. 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**.
