# What is the probability that the dice sum to more than 8?

Contents

There are a total of 36 possible outcomes when you roll two dices, as outlined in the picture below: The sum is greater than 8 for 10 out of those 36 outcomes. Thus, the probability is 10/36 = 5/18.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum that is greater than 8?

The probability that the sum of the numbers is greater than 8 is one.

## What is the probability that the total of two dice will be greater than 8?

The probability of a total greater than 8 given that the first die is 6 is therefore 4/6 = 2/3. More formally, this probability can be written as: p(total>8 | Die 1 = 6) = 2/3.

## What is the probability that the sum of the numbers on the dice will be 8?

There are 5 possible ways for the the sum to be 8, they are: 2 and 6, 3 and 5, 4 and 4, 5 and 3, and finally, 6 and 2. Note, 2 and 6 is not the same as 6 and 2. The probability of any number occurring is 1 in 36 or 1 / 36.

## 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 of rolling a total that is neither 7 nor 11?

Therefore Probablity of sum neither 7 nor 11 is 7/9.

## How many ways can we get a sum of 8 when two indistinguishable dice are rolled?

There are 36 possible combinations. 2. You can get an 8 with 6-2, 5-3, 4-4, 3-5 and 2-6.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7 and 11?

What is the probability that the sum will be a 7 or 11? There are 36 possible outcomes for the two dice. So, the probability is 8/36 = 2/9.
