## When two dice are thrown simultaneously What is the probability of getting a sum greater than 5?

Therefore, the total number of outcomes in which sum is more than 5 =n(E)=26. We know that, probability of an event =number of desired outcometotal number of outcome=n(E)n(S). =n(E)n(S)=2636=**1318**. Hence, option (d) is the correct answer.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum less than 3?

There are 6 total possible results, so the probability of rolling a number less than 3 is **26** or 13 or 0.3333 .

## What is the probability of getting a sum as 3 if a pair of dice are thrown?

We know that the number of possible outcomes is 36. Thus, the probability of getting multiples of 3 as a sum of digits on dice is =**1236=13**.

## What is the probability of rolling 10 or higher with two dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

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

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

10 | 3 |
8.33% |

11 | 2 | 5.56% |

12 | 1 | 2.78% |

## What is the probability of rolling a sum less than or equal to 6?

There are: 6×6=36 possible outcomes. Of these there are **10** totals which are less than 6 .

## What is the probability of rolling a sum less than or equal to 7?

We can express this a couple of ways: P(sum of 2 number cubes≤7)=2136=**712**. P(sum of 2 number cubes≤7)=1−P(sum of 2 number cubes>7)=1−1536=2136=712.

## What is the probability of getting an odd sum when two dice are thrown?

The odds of rolling one five from two dice rolls is 136. The odds of rolling an odd number from the sum of two rolls requires that we roll one even number from one die and an odd number from another die. The odds of this happening are **12**.

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

Well, for every integer n there are exactly 3 even numbers in the set of possible outcomes: {n+1,n+2,n+3,n+4,n+5,n+6} and all outcomes are equiprobable. So the answer is **36=0.5**. For n you can take anything you like. Also a random n will do, like the sum of one, two (or more) dice.

## What is the probability of getting doublet?

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