## What is the probability that a sum of 8 on the 2 dice will occur at least once?

You can get the pairs (2,6), (3,5), (4,4), (5,3), (6,2). That’s 5 ways of getting a sum of 8. There are 6*6 = 36 possibilities, so the probability is 5/36= **13.9%** approximately. (If you ever play craps at a casino, it’s good to know these probabilities).

## What is the probability of getting the sum of 8?

The chance of rolling a sum of 8… well, if you roll a 1 on either die, you cannot roll a sum of 8. The chances of rolling the result that, paired with your roll on the first die, will result in an 8 are **1 in 6** regardless of which number you first rolled, so the chances of this are 5/6*1/6=5/36.

## What is the probability that the sum is 8 when throwing a dice given that the first die shows a 3?

The total number of ways to roll an 8 with 3 dice is therefore 21, and the probability of rolling an 8 is **21/216**, which is less than 5/36. heads out of 20 is (20 10 ) /220 ≈ 17.6%.

## How many ways can we get a sum of 8 when two indistinguishable dice are rolled?

There are **36 possible combinations**. 2. You can get an 8 with 6-2, 5-3, 4-4, 3-5 and 2-6.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 6 or 8 on a roll of a pair of dice?

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 8 Brainly?

The probability of getting a sum of 8 on the two dice is **5/36**.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 when two dice are thrown?

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**.
