## What is the probability of rolling a sum of four on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Now we can see that the sum 4 will be rolled with probability 3/36 = **1/12**, and the sum 5 with probability 4/36 = 1/9.

## What is the probability of rolling two standard six sided dice and getting a sum of at least 8?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

7 | 6 | 16.67% |

8 | 5 |
13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

10 | 3 | 8.33% |

## When a standard pair of six sided dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a 7?

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 pair of six sided dice?

Assuming we have a standard six-sided die, the odds of rolling a particular value are **1/6**. There is an equal probability of rolling each of the numbers 1-6.

…

What are the most likely outcomes from rolling a pair of dice?

Outcome | Probability |
---|---|

7 | 6/36 = 16.67% |

8 | 5/36 = 13.89% |

9 | 4/36 = 11.11% |

10 | 3/36 = 8.33% |

## When rolling a pair of dice What is the probability of rolling a sum less than 10?

so I wrote out all the possabilities of combinations of 10 or higher. That totals 8 combination out of 36 that could be ten or higher, so 8/36= 2/9. since I wanted less than ten 1-(2/9) = **7/9** probability of getting less than 10.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 9 when two dice are thrown?

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