Just as one die has six outcomes and two dice have 62 = 36 outcomes, the probability experiment of rolling three dice has 63 = 216 outcomes.
How many ways can 3 dice fall?
We can list all possible outcomes for the three dice and add a fourth column that contains a 0 if the event is not in A and contains a 1 if the event is in A. By simple counting, we find that there are 15 outcomes in event A, out of the total of 216 possible outcomes.
What is the probability of rolling a pair with 3 dice?
Probability of all three dice the same = 1×1/6×1/6=1/36. Probability of no dice the same = 1×5/6×4/6=20/36. Probability of a pair = 1−1/36−20/36=15/36.
How many combinations can 2 dice make?
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. If you add up the numbers in the total column above, you’ll get 36.
What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?
What about 7 OR 11? There are 6 x 6 or 36 options, all are equally likely, 7 occurs 6 times, so the chances are 6/36 or 1/6. 11 occurs 2 times so chances are 2/36 or 1/18. 7 or 11 are 8 of the 36 options so 8/36 or 2/9.
