The probability of rolling a total of 3 or less on two dice is 3 in 36 or 1 in 12.

To find the probability of something happening orsomething else happening, you add together the probability of each happening, and then subtract the probability of both happening.For instance, the probability of rolling greater than 4 on a dice is 1/3. You could roll 5 or 6. The probability of rolling an even number is 1/2. You could roll 2, 4 or 6. The probability of rolling greater than 4 or an even number is 1/3 + 1/2 - 1/6 which = 2/3

It is 1 (a certainty) if you roll it often enough. For a single roll of a fair die, the probability is 1/6.

The probability is zero. No number can be less than 3 and greater than 4.

The probability of rolling a seven with one roll of a standard number cube is zero.

The probability of rolling a total of 3 or less on two dice is 3 in 36 or 1 in 12.

Sample space, roll of 1 die, is: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. The numbers greater than 3 are: 4, 5, 6; which is 1/2 of the sample space. So, probability of rolling a number greater than 3 on one roll of a die is 1/2 or 0.5.

Only 6 is greater than 5 on a standard cubic die. The chance of rolling a 6 is one in six.
