The probability of rolling a 7 with 2 dice is 6/36; probability of rolling an 11 is 2/36. Add the two together to find probability of rolling a 7 or 11 which is 8/36 or 2/9.

The probability of rolling a 4 in a die is 1 in 6, or about 0.1667. The probability, then, of rolling a 4 in at least one of two dice rolls is twice that, or 2 in 6, or 0.3333. The probability of rolling a sum of 4 in two dice is 3 in 36, or 1 in 18, or about 0.05556.

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%.

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.

Well there is 36 different possibilities with rolling 2 6 sided dice. The probability of rolling the sum of 10 with 2 die is 4/36 or 1/8 chance.
