Two standard dice cannot have a sum greater than 12. The probability, then, of getting a sum greater than 15 is zero.

You can't get 14 with two regular six-sided dice ! The highest you can get with one throw is 12.

The probability is 90/216 = 5/12

5 out of 12

It's1/12

The probability of rolling 12 with 2 dice is 1 in 36. The probability of not rolling 12 with 2 dice is 35 in 36.

The probability is zero. The largest possible sum on two dice is 12.

Two standard dice cannot have a sum greater than 12. The probability, then, of getting a sum greater than 15 is zero.

35 in 36, or about 0.9722

You can't get 14 with two regular six-sided dice ! The highest you can get with one throw is 12.

The probability of rolling a sum of 12 in a single roll of two dice is 1 in 36, or about 0.0278.

With two normal six-sided dice, the maximum sum can only be 12 (6 x 2 dice), so there is zero probability of rolling a sum that adds to 16.

There is an approximately 8% chance of that, or 1 out of 12.

It is 15/36 = 5/12

Assuming a 6 sided die, a roll of 2 gives a maximum value of 12. So the probability of getting a 16 is zero.

Zero is the probability of rolling a sum of 15 on two fair dice; the maximum value is 12.

It is 1/36.
