In this case, you should first calculate the probability of NOT rolling either a 3 or a 6. For one die, this probability is 4/6 = 2/3. For two dice, this probability is 2/3 x 2/3 = 4/9. Therefore, the probability that you DO get a 3 or a 6 is 1 - 4/9 = 5/9.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the probability of rolling a 5 and a 2?

there is a probability of 1/6.Answer:For two dice to show 5 and 2:There are two ways to roll a "good" number (2 or 5) for the first dice. This gives odds of 2/6.For the second dice there is one way to role a good number ( 1 in 6)The odds to roll both a 2 and a 5 are (2/6)x(1/6) or 2/36 or 1/18.

What is the Role of Independence in the topic of probabilities and is there an example of it?

There is a wonderful and brief explanation at the link. One thought: Without the concept of independence, the accurate probability that two events will occur together would be a problem. You need to know if the events are dependent on one another in some way. If I roll two fair dice, what is the probability that I will roll two sixes? I know that the events (the results I get from the two dice) are independent of one another. So the probability of their happening together is the product of the probabilities that they will happen independently.


What is the probability that you roll a 5 and a 2?

We assume a 6 sided fair die. Now, note that the probability of rolling any number is independent of the probability of the outcome on the next role of the die. In probability terms we say the two events are independent this implies that is we look at the probability of A and the probability of B the probability of A and B is P(A)xP(B) Since we are look at the probability of a 5 and there are 6 possible outcomes, the probability of a 5 is 1/6 and a similar argument tells us the probability of a 2 is 1/6. Now, since they are independent, the probability of a 5 AND a 2 is 1/6 x 1/6=1/36 If you want to consider dice with different shapes and fewer than 6 numbers, the answer will change. I have considered only a 6 sided fair die since if one understands how this works, one can generalize to other scenarios. The commonly used die is called a cubic polyhedron. Dice come as many different polyhedra and these make for interesting probability questions.
