## When 2 dice are rolled find the probability of getting sum 4?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

2 | 1 | 2.78% |

3 | 2 | 5.56% |

4 | 3 |
8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 4?

Step-by-step explanation:

Probability of getting a sum of 4 on one toss of two dice is **3/36**, or 1/12.

## What is the probability of getting a 4?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 4 4 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Now we can see that the sum 4 will be rolled with probability 3/36 = **1/12**, and the sum 5 with probability 4/36 = 1/9. Below you can check our random “roll of dice” generator. It will count for you the total number of rolls and the total for each sum.

## How do you find the probability of two dice?

If you want to know how likely it is to get a certain total score from rolling two or more dice, it’s best to fall back on the simple rule: **Probability = Number of desired outcomes ÷ Number of possible outcomes.**

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 6?

Probability of getting a total of 6 = **5/36**.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7?

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**.
