Note that there are 36 possibilities for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## How many outcomes are there in a die?

When you roll a single die, you can get **six possible outcomes**: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. However, when you roll two dice, this number jumps to 36, as shown in the following figure. Possible rolls for a pair of dice.

## How many die are in a pair of dice?

Since each die has 6 values, there are 6∗6=**36** 6 ∗ 6 = 36 total combinations we could get. If you add up the numbers in the total column above, you’ll get 36.
