## What is the probability that the sum of two dice is greater than 6?

As each roll is independent of each other and there are 6 possible results for each D6, rolling two dice gives you 6 * 6 = 36 possible results. For Event A: If the first dice rolled is 1, then there is 1 possible result the second D6 can roll, if added with the first number yields a sum greater than 6 (6).

## Why is the sum of two even numbers always even?

Since the sum of two integers is just another integer then we can let an integer n be equal to (x+y) . Substituting (x+y) by n in 2(x+y), we obtain 2n which is clearly an even number. Thus, the sum of two even numbers is even.
