# When two dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6?

Contents

Each dice has six combinations which are independent. Therefore the number of possible outcomes will be 6*6 = 36. The probability of rolling a pair of dice whose numbers add to 5 is 4/36 = 1/9.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 5 when rolling two dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total Number of combinations Probability
2 1 2.78%
3 2 5.56%
4 3 8.33%
5 4 11.11%

## When throwing 2 dice What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 on the first roll and a sum of 7 on the second roll?

Probability corresponding with sum 5 is 436 and probability corresponding with sum 7 is 636. Neglecting the other outcomes we find a probability 410 for sum 5 and 610 for sum 7.

## What is the probability that the sum is 5 or lower?

As a result, the probability that the sum is 5 or lower is 5/18.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 20 when tossing 2 dice?

The maximum sum that we can get when we roll 2 dice is 12. So, the probability of getting 20 is obviously .

## What is the probability of rolling two dice and not getting a sum of 5?

If you do, the chances of NOT getting a 5 on the second die are 5 in 6. 1/6*5/6=5/36 of the time you’ll get one 5 this way. If you don’t get a 5 on the first die (that’s a 5/6 chance) then the chances of getting a 5 on the second die are 1 in 6.

## 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 the sum of 6?

The answer would be 5/36 because the number of possible outcomes is 36, and the possible ways to get a sum of six are (1, 5), (2, 4), (3, 3), (4, 2), (5, 1). There are 5 ways and 36 possible outcomes in total, so 5/36 is the answer.

## What is the probability of rolling a 5 or 7?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

4 3/36 (8.333%)
5 4/36 (11.111%)
6 5/36 (13.889%)
7 6/36 (16.667%)

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

There is only a probability that you would get a 5 or a 10 7 times in 36 rolls, but you would have to roll those dice a thousand or more times before you would probably find that you were getting a 5 or a 10 approximately 20% of the times.
