The required probability is 5/36 .

## What is the probability of throwing a total of 8 in a single throw with two dice?

The probability of throwing any given total is the number of ways to throw that total divided by the total number of combinations (36).

…

Probabilities for the two dice.

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

7 | 6 | 16.67% |

8 | 5 |
13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

10 | 3 | 8.33% |

## 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 probability of getting a doublet of even number?

So, the number of favourable outcomes is 3. We know that the number of possible outcomes is 36. Thus, the probability of getting a doublet of an even number is =**336=112**.

## What is the probability of getting a number less than 7 in a single throw of a dice?

Answer: the probability of getting a number less than 7 in a throw of dice is **1**.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 6 or 8 on a roll of a pair of dice?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

7 | 21/36 (58.333%) |

8 | 26/36 (72.222%) |

9 | 30/36 (83.333%) |

## What is the probability of getting a total of 8 or 12 when a pair of dice is tossed?

∴ Probability of getting a total of 8 is =365+3=368=**92**.

## 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 the sum is an even number?

5 Answers. Now, note that P(even|first was even)=P(second is even)=**1/2**. Similarly, P(even|first was odd)=P(second is odd)=1/2. Thus, we have P(even sum)=1/2(P(first was even)+P(first was odd))=1/2(1)=1/2.
