## What total are you most likely to get when throwing a pair of dice?

This is because rolling one die is independent of rolling a second one. One roll has no effect on the other. When dealing with independent events we use the multiplication rule. The use of a tree diagram demonstrates that there are **6 x 6 = 36 possible outcomes** from rolling two dice.

## What are the odds when rolling 2 dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

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

2 | 1 | 2.78% |

3 | 2 | 5.56% |

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

## What is the probability of 3 dice?

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

3 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

## When two dice are rolled the maximum total on the two faces of the dice will be?

Answer: When two dice are thrown simultaneously, thus number of event can be **62** = 36 because each die has 1 to 6 number on its faces.

## 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**.
