There are 36 possible outcomes when we roll a pair of dice. Rolling a five can be done the following ways: 3-2, 4-1, 2-3 and 1-4. That's four ways to roll a five with one roll of the dice. The odds of rolling a five are 4 in 36, or 1 in 9. That makes the probability of rolling a five equal to 0.11111....We know that the probability of something is a ratio of the number of times it can be done to the total number of things that are possible. Probabilities range from zero to one, inclusive. If something has a probability of zero, it cannot happen. Like rolling a 13. A 13 cannot be rolled with one roll of a pair of standard dice. Thus the probability of rolling a 13 is zero, as it cannot happen.If something has a probability of one, it must happen. Like the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of a pair of dice. Since any number we roll must be either odd or even, then the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of a pair of dice is one. An odd or an even number must turn up, and that is why the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of the dice is one. Lastly, we've seen that the probability of rolling a given number with one roll of the dice is the number of times that number might appear divided by the total number of possibilities that might appear.

The two dice can be (odd, odd), (odd, even), (even, odd), or (even, even). Thus the probability of two dice totaling an even number is 2*(1/2)*(1/2) = 1/2. 50/50

1. The event that you get an even number of a number less than 6 is a certainty.

Probably.

The probability of getting an even number on a six sided dice is 3 out of 6 or one half because the only even numbers are 2,4,6 (which are all even).

1/2.

It is 0.5

If two dice (not dices!) are thrown then the probability that you get an even number on one die is 27/36 = 3/4

The probability that the sum of the numbers rolled is either even or a multiple of 5 is 11/18.

The probability of rolling an even die and then an odd die is (3 in 6) times (3 in 6), which is the same as (1 in 2) times (1 in 2), which is the same as 0.5 time 0.5, which is 0.25.

The probability is .5 since half the numbers are even and half are odd.
