the probability of tossing a coin and it landing on head is a 1 in 2 chance the probability of rolling a 5 on a dice is a 1 in 6 chance

The answer depends on what numbers are on the faces of the dice.

The probability of rolling a six with a standard die five times in a row is (1 in 6)5 which equals 1 in 7776 or about 0.0001286.

There are 6 × 6 = 36 possible outcomes There are 3 odd numbers, so there are 3 × 3 = 9 results that are a success → probability of both dice showing an odd number = 9/36 = 1/4

In rolling two fair dice, the probability of obtaining a sum greater than 10 is 3 in 36 or 1 in 12, and the probability of obtaining a sum divisible by 6 is 6 in 36 or 1 in 6. Since the two probabilities come from the same population of 36 possible outcomes, the combined probability is the inclusive or of the two result sets, 8 in 36 or 2 in 9. The results that match the sum>10 target are 5-6, 6-5, and 6-6. The results that match the divisibility by 6 target are 1-5, 2-4, 3-3, 4-2, 5-1, and 6-6. The results that match the combined target are 1-5, 2-4, 3-3, 4-2, 5-1, 5-6, 6-5, and 6-6.

The probability of not rolling a sum of six with two fair dice is 1 minus the probability of rolling a sum of six. There are 36 permutations of rolling two dice. Of these, five sum to six, 1+5, 2+4, 3+3, 4+2, and 5+1. The probability, then of rolling a sum of six is 5 in 36. The probability, then of not rolling a sum of six is 31 in 36, or about 0.8611.

For two fair die, it is 5/36.
