## What is the probability of 11?

up to 6+6. Of those totals, 3 are 11 or more: 5+6, 6+6 and 6+5. So 3/36 or 1/12 is the answer. Think of it this way.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 9 or 11?

P(of getting a total of 9 or 11) = 1 / 6.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7?

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.
