# What is the probability of getting sum 5 with n dice?

Contents

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.

## What is the probability of getting 5 when a die is thrown?

Solution: Total number of outcomes when die is thrown twice = 6 × 6 = 36. The probability that 5 will not come up either time is 25/36 and the probability that 5 will come up is 11/36.

## What is the probability of getting 5 when two dice are thrown together?

The probability of obtaining a total score of 5 is 1) 1/9 2) 1/18 3) 1/36 4) 1/12. Therefore, the required probability = 4/ 36 = 1/9.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 with 4 dice?

The only way to get a sum of 5 is to get three 1’s and one 2. So there are 4 ways to get that 2 with the other three 1’s, and a sum of 5. There are 6 ways each die can land so there are 6^4 or1296 ways for the dice to land. So the probability is 5/1296.

## What is probability of getting a 5?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… Probability
2 1/36 (2.778%)
3 2/36 (5.556%)
4 3/36 (8.333%)
5 4/36 (11.111%)

## What is the probability of getting 1 and 5 If a dice is thrown once?

So they are mutually exclusive events, therefore their probabilities add to 1. By symmetry we expect that each face is equally likely to appear and so each has probability = 1/6. The outcome of a 5 is one of those events and so has probability = 1/6 of appearing.

## What is the probability of getting at most a total of 5?

As the chart shows the closer the total is to 7 the greater is the probability of it being thrown.

Probabilities for the two dice.

Total Number of combinations Probability
4 3 8.33%
5 4 11.11%
6 5 13.89%
7 6 16.67%

## What is the probability of drawing 5 hearts?

The probability of 5 hearts OR 5 clubs OR 5 diamonds OR 5 spades is approximately . 002 or 1 out of 500, four times the probability of drawing 5 hearts. A common misconception about probability is that being “lucky” once will lower the probability that you will be “lucky” again.

## What are the odds of rolling 5 sixes with 5 dice?

Now, consider the five dice. Each die is independent, so the probability of getting all sixes is simply (11/36)5.

## How many combinations of 6 dice are there?

Since each die has 6 values, there are 6∗6=36 6 ∗ 6 = 36 total combinations we could get. If you add up the numbers in the total column above, you’ll get 36.
