# Your question: What is the probability that 2 dice show the same number?

Contents

If two dice are thrown, what is the probability that both dice show the same number? There are 36 equally likely outcomes, 6 of these outcomes will show the same outcome. Showing the same outcome is known as doubles; (1,1) (2,2) (3,3) (4,4) (5,5) (6,6). This is 6/36 which reduces to 1/6 or approximately 16.67%.

## What is the probability of rolling a 3 twice?

Since the occurrence of 3 on first roll is independent of the occurrence of an odd number on the second roll, Probability of complete event =(probability of showing a 3 on the first roll) x (probability of an odd number on the second roll)=1/6×1/2=1/12.

## When two sided dice are rolled There are 36 possible outcomes?
