# What is the probability of the sum of 5 resulting from the roll of two dice?

Contents

Each dice has six combinations which are independent. Therefore the number of possible outcomes will be 6*6 = 36. The probability of rolling a pair of dice whose numbers add to 5 is 4/36 = 1/9.

## How many ways can get sum of 5 when you roll two dice at the same time?

We can get a sum of 5 in two different combinations also: (1,4) and (2,3).

## When throwing 2 dice What is the probability of rolling a sum of 5 on the first roll and a sum of 7 on the second roll?

Probability corresponding with sum 5 is 436 and probability corresponding with sum 7 is 636. Neglecting the other outcomes we find a probability 410 for sum 5 and 610 for sum 7.

## What is the probability of getting the sum of 5?

The probability that you will get a 5 is one out of six or 1/6.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 20 when tossing 2 dice?

The maximum sum that we can get when we roll 2 dice is 12. So, the probability of getting 20 is obviously .

## What is the probability of rolling two dice and not getting a sum of 5?

If you do, the chances of NOT getting a 5 on the second die are 5 in 6. 1/6*5/6=5/36 of the time you’ll get one 5 this way. If you don’t get a 5 on the first die (that’s a 5/6 chance) then the chances of getting a 5 on the second die are 1 in 6.

## What is the probability of rolling a 9 as the sum of 2 die on a roll?

The probability of getting 9 as the sum when 2 dice are thrown is 1/9.

## 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 rolling a sum less than 10?

That totals 8 combination out of 36 that could be ten or higher, so 8/36= 2/9. since I wanted less than ten 1-(2/9) = 7/9 probability of getting less than 10.

## What is the probability that the sum of two dice is 5 or 7?

Since there are 6 * 6 = 36 possible rolls of two dice, there are 18 rolls whose sum is even. So there are 6 possibilities for the sum to be 7. Thus, there are 18 + 6 = 24 possibilities for the sum to be even or 7. This gives a probability of 24/36 = 66.6%.

## What is the probability that a sum of less than 6 is rolled?

The number of outcomes less than 6 is 10 ,so the probability is 10/36=5/18.
