## What is the probability of rolling a sum greater than 8 with 2 dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

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

6 | 5 |
13.89% |

7 | 6 | 16.67% |

8 | 5 | 13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

## What is the probability of getting a sum of more than 9?

So probability of getting a sum greater than 9 is= 6/36=**1/6** Ans.

## 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.

## What is the probability of rolling a total that is neither 7th nor 11?

Therefore Probablity of sum neither 7 nor 11 is **7/9**.

## What is the probability of getting a sum greater than 3?

Numbers that is greater than 3 is **4,5,6**. For 2 dices that would be 6/12 or 1/2.

## What is the probability of obtaining a value of 9?

For example, if you wanted to know the probability of rolling a 4, or a 7: 3/36 + 6/36 = 9/36.
