## What is the probability of getting a 7 when rolling 2 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 1 and then a 2 on a six-sided dice?

Based on this, you correctly conclude that a one and a two occurs with probability 236, or **118**. So far, so good.

## Why is 7 the most rolled number?
