Answer: The probability of rolling two dice and getting a sum of 4 is 1/12.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 4 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

The probability of rolling a sum of 4 is 1/12 = 0.83333… . There are 6*6 = 36 possible outcomes of rolling a pair of standard six-sided dice (for each of the six possible outcomes on one of the dice, there are 6 possible outcomes on the other dice), of which the following 3 yield a total of 4: (1,3), (2,2), (3,1).

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6?

What is the probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6 when a pair of dice is rolled? Probability of getting a sum of 5 or 6 = 9/36 = 1/4.

## What is the probability that the sum is 4?

Probability of getting a sum of 4 on one toss of two dice is 3/36, or 1/12.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 6 or 4?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

3 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

## What is the probability of getting a sum 5?

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 getting a sum of 5 in a single toss of 2 dice?

Originally Answered: In a single throw of two dice, what is the probability of getting a sum of 5? There are altogether 36 possibilities. Of these ,(1,4),(2,3),(3,2),(4,1) will give a sum of 5. Hence the probability is 4/36=1/9.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 6?

Answer: The probability of rolling a sum of 6 with two dice is 5/36.

## How do you find the probability?

How to calculate probability

- Determine a single event with a single outcome.
- Identify the total number of outcomes that can occur.
- Divide the number of events by the number of possible outcomes.

## What is the probability that the sum of the dice is 4/5 or 6?

There are a total of seven ways for the total on the two dice to be either 4 or 5. If the dice are fair, the desired probability is 7/36.

## How do you find the probability of a sum?

The probability that A or B will occur is the sum of the probability of each event, minus the probability of the overlap. P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B)
