For a single roll of a pair of fair dice, the answer is 1/36.

In one roll the probability is 1/36.

Assuming they are fair, regular dice, the probability is 1/18.

It is 1/2

The probability is 1/2.

1 out of 6 times,or 16.67% probability.

The addition rule of probability states that the probability that one or the other will happen is the probability of one plus the probability of the other. This rule only applies to mutually exclusive events. For example, the probability that a dice roll will be a 3 is 1/6. The probability that the dice roll will be even is 1/2. These are mutually exclusive events as the dice cannot be both 3 and even. Thus the probability of the dice roll coming up either a 3, or even, is 1/2 + 1/6 = 2/3.

The probability is 5/36.

It is 23/36.

It is 2/6 = 1/3

Assuming they are fair dice that are numbered 1 to 6, the probability is 2/36 = 1/18
