When two dice are rolled find the probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6?
For example, if you wanted to know the probability of rolling a 4, or a 7: 3/36 + 6/36 = 9/36. Probability of rolling a certain number or less for two 6-sided dice.
Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table.
When two dice are tossed asynchronously What is the probability of getting the sum of 6?
Therefore probability of getting sum 6= 5/36.
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.
