| Since we don’t care what the outcome of the first roll is, its probability is 1. The second roll of the dice has to match the outcome of the first, so that has a probability of 1/6. The probability of both events occurring is 1 * 1/6.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 7 when rolling two dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

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

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

6 | 5 | 13.89% |

7 | 6 |
16.67% |

## When two dice are thrown what is the probability of getting similar faces?

Answer: Probability for rolling two dice with the six sided dots such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 dots in each die. When two dice are thrown simultaneously, thus number of event can be **62 = 36** because each die has 1 to 6 number on its faces.

## What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?

What about 7 OR 11? There are 6 x 6 or 36 options, all are equally likely, 7 occurs 6 times, so the chances are 6/36 or 1/6. 11 occurs 2 times so chances are **2/36 or 1/18**. 7 or 11 are 8 of the 36 options so 8/36 or 2/9.

## What is the probability of getting a 6 on two dice?

When you roll two dice, you have a **30.5 % chance** at least one 6 will appear.

## What is the probability of getting at most the difference of 3?

1/6 chance for each side, 1/36 to roll any one of those combinations. Multiply that chance by 3, for the 3 combinations we can roll to give us a difference of 3, and we get **3/36**, or an 8.

## When two dice are thrown what is the probability?

We know that the total number of possible outcomes when two dice are thrown is =**6×6=36**. We know that the probability of any event is the ratio of the number of favourable outcomes and the number of possible outcomes.

## What is the probability of getting a 2 or a 5 when a die is rolled?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 2/36 (5.556%) |

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

## When two dice are thrown what is the probability of getting a doublet?

Probability of getting a doublet = 6/36 = **1/6**.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 5 or 9 or 11 when a pair of dice is rolled once?

If we want to calculate the probability of rolling, say, a five, we need to divide the number of ways to get 5 by the total possible combinations of two dice.

…

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