# Quick Answer: When two dice are rolled what is the probability of rolling doubles or a sum of 8?

Contents

There are 36 outcomes in total. Five of them (2,6), (3,5), (4,4), (5,3) and (6,2) result in sum 8. So, assuming all outcomes are equiprobable, the answer is 5/36.

## When rolling two dice What is the probability of rolling doubles?

In many games involving dice, rolling doubles is desirable. Rolling doubles mean the outcomes of two dice are the same, such as 1&1 or 5&5. The probability of rolling doubles when rolling two dice is 6/36 = 1/6.

## What is the probability of rolling doubles or a sum of 11?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total Number of combinations Probability
8 5 13.89%
9 4 11.11%
10 3 8.33%
11 2 5.56%

## 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.

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

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 rolling a sum of 7 and 11?

What is the probability that the sum will be a 7 or 11? There are 36 possible outcomes for the two dice. So, the probability is 8/36 = 2/9.

## What is the probability of rolling two even numbers?

Probability of both even is 12×12=14. Given they are both even there are 3 possible even numbers: 2,4,6.

## What are the odds of rolling a double 1?

The chances of rolling doubles with a single toss of a pair of dice is 1 in 6. People want to believe it’s 1 in 36, but that’s only if you specify which pair of doubles must be thrown.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 dice and rolling a 5 then 1?

There is a 16 probability of getting a 2 on the first roll and a 16 probability of getting a 5 on the second roll.
