## What is probability of getting a sum 9 from two throws of a dice?

What is the probability of getting a sum 9 from two throws of a dice? Explanation: In two throws of a dice, n(S) = (6 x 6) = **36**.

## What is the probability of rolling a number greater than 9?

P(a number greater than 9)=6/36=**1/6**.

## When two dice are thrown what is the probability of getting a doublet?

Probability of getting a doublet = 6/36 = **1/6**.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 when two dice are thrown?

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**.
