two ways one and three and a pair of twos

Total different rolls are 36 (6x6) Ways to roll an 11 is 2 (5/6 and 6/5) Probability = number_of_rolls_of_success/total_number_of_rolls = 2/36 = 1/18

The set of possible outcomes is the set of different ways in which an event might or might not happen. Take a very simple example: If you roll a dice you will roll a 6 or a 5 or a 4 or a 3 or a 2 or a 1. So there are 6 different possible outcomes, all of which are equally probable. If you roll 2 dice at the same time the possible total scores are are from 2 ( a 1 and a 1) to 12 (a 6 and a 6), so there are 11 possible outcomes, but not all equally probable.

Five numbers can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways.

A die normally has six sides with the numbers 1 to 6 on them, so any roll will be less than 10 and thus the probability of getting less than 10 with a die is 1. With two normal dice, the sum of the digits on the dice added together ranges from 2 to 12 and the probability of getting less than 10 is the same as 1 minus the probability of getting 10 or more. There are 36 ways the two dice can fall and 10 can be achieved in 3 ways (4&6, 5&5, 6&4), 11 can be achieved in 2 ways (5&6, 6&5) and 12 in 1 way (6&6). Thus the probability of getting 10 or more with 2 dice is (3+2+1)/36 = 6/36 = 1/6 So the probability of getting less than 10 is 1-1/6 = 5/6

The are more ways to roll a 6 (five ways) than to roll a 4 (three ways).

The probability is 1 in 36

6 ways: 1 and 4, 4 and 1, 2 and 3, 3 and 2, 5 and 0, 0 and 5 A five can be rolled with either dice being a 2,3,4,1 and the other dice being the correlating number that adds to five ie. 4-1, 1-4. 3-2. 2-3. There is no 0 on a die.

count the number of times you get number 1, when you roll a pair of dice.. cheerio

3 ways 6 and 1. 3 and 4. 5 and 2.

if you are talking about getting a roll that totals 6 - there is only one way to roll that - get all ones. as such there are 6^6 -1 = 46656 -1 = 46655 other ways to roll the dice. so the odds of not rolling a total of 6 with 6 dice is 46655/46656 = .~99.997857%. If you are talking about not rolling a 6 on ANY of the dice, there are 5 ways to roll each die that will give you something other than 6 so the number of ways to not roll any 6's is 5^6 = 15625. That means the odds of not rolling any 6's on 6 dice is 15625/46656 = ~38.489798%

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 sum of 6 is five times more likely, because there are five ways to roll a 6 but only one way to make a 2.

A single roll of 2 dice can come up in (6 x 6) = 36 ways. A sum of five is made with 1 and 4, 4 and 1 2 and 3, 3 and 2 four out of the 36. The probability is (4/36)= 1/9 on each roll. If each roll is perfectly random, then the probability of getting a 5 in 9 rolls is 100%.

The probability of a sum of seven if you roll two dice is 6/36 or 1/6. There are 6 ways to roll a 7; (6,1) (5,2) (4,3) (3,4) (2,5) & (1,6) and 36 possible outcomes.
