# What is the probability of getting a sum of 6 when two dice are thrown?

Contents

## How many ways can you roll two dice and get a sum of 6?

How many total combinations are possible from rolling two dice? Since each die has 6 values, there are 6∗6=36 6 ∗ 6 = 36 total combinations we could get.

What are the most likely outcomes from rolling a pair of dice?

Outcome Probability
6 5/36 = 13.89%
7 6/36 = 16.67%
8 5/36 = 13.89%
9 4/36 = 11.11%

## When two dice are thrown the probability of getting the sum?

The number of favourable outcomes is the sum of occurrences of all the favourable outcomes. So, the number of favourable outcomes =1+2+4+6+2=15. We know that the number of possible outcomes is 36. Thus, the probability of getting the sum of two numbers as prime numbers is =1536=512.

## When a dice is thrown probability of getting number 6 is?

The probability of getting number 6 in a throw of a dice is 1/6Similarly, the probability of getting a number 5 is 1/5.

## 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 6 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

3/36 + 6/36 = 9/36.

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 dice and getting 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.
