# What is the probability of not getting a sum of 8 if a pair of dice is rolled?

Contents

The probability of any number occurring is 1 in 36 or 1 / 36. Then the probability an 8 will not occur is: 1 – 5 / 36 or 31 / 36.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 8 in rolling two dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

11 2 5.56%

## What is the probability of not getting a sum of 8 if a pair of dice is rolled *?

36–5 = 31 ways to roll dice not adding to 8. So the probability of not rolling an 8 is 31/36 = 0.8611… When a die is rolled; there are 6 possible outcomes: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. Thus, when two dice are rolled, there are (6 * 6) = 36 possible outcomes.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 6 or 8 on a roll of a pair of dice?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… Probability
6 15/36 (41.667%)
7 21/36 (58.333%)
8 26/36 (72.222%)
9 30/36 (83.333%)

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

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 the difference of 1?

Let A be the event of getting the difference as 1. = 10. = 5/18. Hope this helps!

## What is the probability of not rolling a sum of 10 with two dice?

There are 36 different results that can come from rolling 2 dice, and 3 of them add up to 10. So, the chance of not adding up to 10 is 33/36.

## What is the probability of not rolling a sum of 5 on two dice?

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.

## 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.
