Note that there are 36 possibilities for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## How many sample points are in the sample space when a pair of dice is thrown once?

Example: Throwing dice

There are **6** different sample points in the sample space.

## How many unique combinations are there with 2 dice?

Note that there are **36 possibilities** for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## What is the chance of getting 7 or 11 with two dice?

What about 7 OR 11? There are 6 x 6 or 36 options, all are equally likely, 7 occurs 6 times, so the chances are 6/36 or 1/6. 11 occurs 2 times so chances are **2/36 or 1/18**. 7 or 11 are 8 of the 36 options so 8/36 or 2/9.

## What is the probability of getting a 2 or a 5 when a die is rolled?
