Seven - there are more ways to make seven than there are to make any other number.

The answer depends on how many dice are rolled. With 12 or more dice, the answer is 0.The answer depends on how many dice are rolled.

The answer depends on what you are rolling: three or more ordinary dice, or fewer dice with non-standard numbers on them, or a die with some other shape.

It is 10/36 = 5/18

When rolling two dice, the number with the highest probability that you will get is 7. There are 36 possibilities when rolling 2 dice (one after the other) including rearranged patterns (for example: 4 and 3 is different from 3 and 4, so they each count as one), but only including doubles once ( 1,1 and 1,1 only count once). It is possible to roll seven 6 different ways, (1,6; 2,5; 3,4; 4,3; 5,2; 6,1) which is more than any other number. The numbers that appear least when rolling 2 dice are 2 and 12, as you can only get each of them one way (2: 1,1. 12: 6,6).

The are more ways to roll a 6 (five ways) than to roll a 4 (three ways).

The sum of 6 is five times more likely, because there are five ways to roll a 6 but only one way to make a 2.

A sum of 4 is more likely. Out of the 36 possible outcomes with a pair of 6-sided dice, only one will have a sum of 2 {1-1}. Three of the possibilities sum to 4. {1-3, 2-2, 3-1}

The probability is 1/6.
