1/6,3/6 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The probability of rolling a 2 is: P(2) = 1/6 The probability of rolling an even number is: P(even) = 1/2 The result on the second roll is independent of the result in the first roll. The probability of rolling a 2 and then rolling an even number is: P(2,even no.) = (1/6) ∙ (1/2) = 1/12 = 0.08333... ≈ 8.33%

The theoretical probability of rolling a 5 on a standard six sided die is one in six. It does not matter how many times you roll it, however, if you roll it 300 times, the theoretical probability is that you would roll a 5 fifty times.

Gary's chances of rolling either a 4 or a 6 are the same for any of the other numbers on the cube. The probability is 1 out of 3.

Assuming that a dice roll is purely random, there is a 1 in 6 probability of landing on any number. Since the second roll depends on the probability of the first, they factor together: First Roll: 1/6 Second Roll: (1/6)(1/6) = 1/36 If you were rolling both dice at once, however, the math would be completely different.

The probability of rolling a sum of 8 on one roll of a pair of dice is 5/36.The probability of not rolling a sum of 8 on one roll of a pair of dice is 31/36.The probability of rolling a sum of 8 twice on two rolls of a pair of dice is(5/36)(5/36) = (5/36)2 .The probability of rolling first a sum of 8 and then rolling a sum that is not 8 on thesecond roll is (5/36)(31/36).The probability of rolling a sum that is not 8 on the first roll and rolling a sum of 8in the second roll is (31/36)(5/36).So The probability of rolling a sum of 8 at least one of two rolls of a pair of dice is(5/36)2 + (5/36)(31/38) + (31/36)(5/36) = 0.258487654... ≈ 25.8%.

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.

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

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.

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