# What is the probability of getting a sum of 5 when two six sided dice are rolled?

Contents

To find the probability determine the number of successful outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes overall. Each dice has six combinations which are independent. Therefore the number of possible outcomes will be 6*6 = 36. The probability of rolling a pair of dice whose numbers add to 5 is 4/36 = 1/9.

## When two 6 sided dice are rolled together what is the probability that the sum is more than 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 not rolling a sum of 4 with two fair dice?

There are six faces for each of two dice, giving 36 possible outcomes. If the two dice are fair, each of 36 outcomes is equally likely. Three outcomes sum to 4: (1+3), (2+2) and (3+1). Probability of getting a sum of 4 on one toss of two dice is 3/36, or 1/12.

## What is the probability that a sum of less than 6 is rolled?

The number of outcomes less than 6 is 10 ,so the probability is 10/36=5/18.

## When two dice are tossed asynchronously What is the probability of getting the sum of 6?

Therefore probability of getting sum 6= 5/36.
