# When rolling two six sided dice What is the probability that the sum of the dice is 6?

Contents

Possible rolls with sums of 6 are (1,5); (2,4); (3,3); (4,2); (5,1). Place these 5 possible results of 6 over the total number of possible outcomes for rolling 2 fair 6-sided dice to obtain 5/(6×6) or 5/36 equal to 0.1388888888889 or 13.8888888889% Probability.

## When two 6 sided dice are rolled find the probability of the given that the sum is not 10?

Consider two dice A/B, there are total 6 * 6 = 36 cases. And the sum is greater than 10 can only be (5, 6), (6, 5), (6, 6). So, the probability is 1 – 3/36= 11/12.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 six sided dice and getting a sum of 9?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total Number of combinations Probability
6 5 13.89%
7 6 16.67%
8 5 13.89%
9 4 11.11%

## What is the probability that while rolling two six sided dice you roll a sum of 2?

There are 6 ways we can roll doubles out of a possible 36 rolls (6 x 6), for a probability of 6/36, or 1/6, on any roll of two fair dice. So you have a 16.7% probability of rolling doubles with 2 fair six-sided dice.

## When two fair six sided dice are rolled How many ways are there to get a sum of 3 or 6?

For two fair-sided dice, there are 36 equally likely possible outcomes: 1–1, 1–2, … 6–6. Of those 36 outcomes, there are two that will give a sum of 3: 1–2, 2–1. So, the probability you’re looking for is 2/36.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 10 with two dice?

If you consider the chart on the webpage given, there are 36 combination of rolls you can get from two dice. When you consider the sum being 10, there are only 3 combinations. So, the probability of getting a 10 would be 3/36 = 1/12.

## What is the probability of rolling a 9 as the sum of 2 die on a roll?

The probability of getting 9 as the sum when 2 dice are thrown is 1/9.

## What is the probability of rolling 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.

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