There are 36 permutations of two dice. Of these, 9 have a sum of 5 or 6, so the probability of rolling a sum of 5 or 6 on two dice is 9 in 36, or 1 in 9, or about 0.1111.

The probability is 1 and you do not need Matlab to get that answer - only a little bit of thought.

If we are thinking of getting a '6', here are the odds. Wth one dice, its 1 in 6. So,with two dice its 1 in 216 with three dice its 1 in 7776 with four dice its 1 in 279936 with five dice its a huge 1 in 10077696

The are 36 permutations of two dice. Of these, 6 permutations have the two dice with the same number, specifically 1+1, 2+2, 3+3, 4+4, 5+5, and 6+6. The probability, then, that two dice rolled will not have the same number is 30 in 36, or 5 in 6, or about 0.8333.

There is one way to roll a sum of 12. There are 36 different outcomes from rolling a pair of dice. Therefore, the probability is 1/36 ~= 0.0278 = 2.78%

Assuming these are regular dice, the probability is 1.

Zero. The minimum value of two dice being rolled is two.

When rolling one die, the probability of getting a 4 is 1 in 6, or 0.1667. If two dice are rolled, you get two unrelated chances of rolling at least one 4, so the probability is 2 in 6, or 0.3333.
