Question: What is the probability of getting a total of 6 on a roll of a pair of dice?

Contents

What is the probability of getting sum of 6?

Probability of getting a total of 6 = 5/36.

What is the probability of rolling a sum of 6 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Assuming we have a standard six-sided die, the odds of rolling a particular value are 1/6. There is an equal probability of rolling each of the numbers 1-6.

What are the most likely outcomes from rolling a pair of dice?

Outcome Probability
4 3/36 = 8.33%
5 4/36 = 11.11%
6 5/36 = 13.89%
7 6/36 = 16.67%

What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7 on a standard pair of six-sided 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.

What is the probability of rolling a sum of four on a standard pair of six-sided dice?

Now we can see that the sum 4 will be rolled with probability 3/36 = 1/12, and the sum 5 with probability 4/36 = 1/9.

What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 or 10?

7 is approximately 20% of 36, so there is a probability that you would get a 5 or 10 once on ever 5 rolls–but don’t bet your money on it!

What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 or a sum of 11?

As Steve says the probability of rolling a 5 is 4/36 and the probability of rolling ian 11 is 2/36 so the probability of rolling neither is 1 – (2/36 + 4/36) = 30/36.

What is the probability of rolling a 1?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table. Single die roll probability tables.

Probability of rolling more than a certain number (e.g. roll more than a 5).

Roll more than a… Probability
1 5/6(83.33%)
2 4/6 (66.67%)
3 3/6 (50%)
4 4/6 (66.667%)

What is the probability of getting either a sum of 7 or at least one 5 in the roll of a pair of dice?

What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 or at least one 5 when you roll two die. Please tell me how to approach this problem. so the answer will be 16/36 = 4/9 ?

What is the experimental probability of getting a sum of 8?

Probabilities for the two dice
