# Question: When two dice are thrown what is the probability that the sum of the two faces shown is 6?

Contents

Answer: The probability of rolling a sum of 6 with two dice is 5/36.

## 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 rolling two dice What is the probability of rolling a sum of 6 or 9?

Those that give a sum of 6 or 9 are: (5,1),(4,2),(3,3),(2,4), (1,5), (6,3) (5,4),(4,5),(3,6). Hence, there are 9 possible satisfactory outcomes. The required probability is 9/36 = 1/4. Originally Answered: Two dice are thrown at a time.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 9 when rolling two dice?

4. 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 3 dice?

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

Probabilities for the two dice

2 1 2.78%
3 2 5.56%
4 3 8.33%
5 4 11.11%

## What is the probability of getting a sum 9 from two throws of a dice 1 6?

Explanation: In two throws of a die, n(S) = (6 x 6) = 36. Let E = event of getting a sum ={(3, 6), (4, 5), (5, 4), (6, 3)}. P(E) =n(E)/n(S)=4/36=1/9.

## 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 22?

6+6+6+4=22 , this arrangement is possible in 4 ways with different positions of numbers 4 to appear. Hence, the option (B) is the correct answer.

## What is the probability of getting a 5 a 6 or a 7 in a single throw of a pair of dice?

So total chance of getting a six or seven by rolling two dice is 6+5 = 11. How many total combinations can we get by throwing two dices is 6 x 6 = 36.
