## What is the probability that the sum of two dice is greater than 8?

6×6=36 possible outcomes and only **15 possible outcomes** summing 8 or more than 8 .

## What is the probability that the sum of two dice is greater than 6?

As each roll is independent of each other and there are 6 possible results for each D6, rolling two dice gives you 6 * 6 = **36 possible results**. For Event A: If the first dice rolled is 1, then there is 1 possible result the second D6 can roll, if added with the first number yields a sum greater than 6 (6).

## What is the probability that the sum will be more than 11?

The probability of getting a sum greater than or equal to 11 is 3/36 = **1/12**.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum greater than or equal to 9?

Then, there are 7 ways, given at least one die is a 6, to roll a 9 or greater. In total, however, you also have 6+1,6+2,2+6,1+6. Therefore there are 11 total possibilities. Then, the probability is **711**.

## What is the probability that the sum of two dice is greater than 10?

There are total of three cases in which the sum is 10 and in two of these the number on one of the die is 4. The required probability is therefore **2/3**. If the sum of the numbers that turn up when 2 dice are thrown is 10, there is a probability of 2/3 that the number on one of the dice is 4.

## What is the probability of getting a sum greater than 3 if two dice are tossed?

The total number of possible outcome is 12. Numbers that is greater than 3 is 4,5,6. For 2 dices that would be **6/12** or 1/2.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 or 10?

There is only a probability that you would get a 5 or **a 10 7 times in 36 rolls**, but you would have to roll those dice a thousand or more times before you would probably find that you were getting a 5 or a 10 approximately 20% of the times.

## What is the probability of getting a total of 7?

Probabilities for the two dice

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 when two dice are thrown?

For each of the possible outcomes add the numbers on the two dice and count how many times this sum is 7. If you do so you will find that the sum is 7 for 6 of the possible outcomes. Thus the sum is a 7 in 6 of the 36 outcomes and hence the probability of rolling a 7 is **6/36 = 1/6**.
