Question

You roll two fair six-sided dice. What is the probability that the sum of the two dice values is exactly five? Be sure to count all possible outcomes. (Hint: The event space has 36 distinct outcomes).

Answer #1

sum of the dice | list of outcomes favourable to sum | number of outcomes favourable to sum |

2 | (1,1) | 1 |

3 | (1,2),(2,1) | 2 |

4 | (1,3),(2,2),(3,1) | 3 |

5 | (1,4)(2,3),(3,2),(4,1) | 4 |

6 | (1,5),(2,4),(3,3),(4,2),(5,1) | 5 |

7 | (1,6),(2,5),(3,4),(4,3),(5,2),(6,1) | 6 |

8 | (2,6),(3,5),(4,4),(5,3),(6,2) | 5 |

9 | (3,6),(4,5),(5,4),(6,3) | 4 |

10 | (4,6),(5,5),(6,4) | 3 |

11 | (5,6),(6,5) | 2 |

12 | (6,6) | 1 |

Total number of distinct case is 36

Number of case in which sum is 5 =4

Suppose you roll two dice (normal six sided dice). What is the
probability that the sum of the spots on the up-faces is 4?

Suppose that you roll 117 fair six-sided dice. Find the
probability that the sum of the dice is less than 400. (Round your
answers to four decimal places.)

Suppose you roll two dice (normal six sided dice). What is the
probability that the sum of the spots on the up-faces is 4 or
8?

We roll three fair six-sided dice.
(a) What is the probability that at least two of the dice land on a
number greater than 4?
(b) What is the probability that we roll a sum of at least
15?
(c) Now we roll three fair dice n times. How large need n be in
order to guarantee a better
than 50% chance of rolling a sum of at least 15, at least once?

Two six-sided dice are rolled and the sum of the roll is
taken.
a) Use a table to show the sample space.
b) Find the Probability and the Odds of each event. E: the sum
of the roll is even and greater then 6
P(E) = O(E) =
F: the sum of the roll is 7 or less that 4
P(F) = O(F) =

Suppose you roll a pair of six-sided dice.
What is the probability that the sum of the numbers on your dice is
at least 9?

Consider rolling two fair six-sided dice.
a) Given that the roll resulted in sum of 8, find the
conditional probability that first die roll is 6.
b) Given that the roll resulted in sum of 4 or less, find the
conditional probability that doubles are rolled.
c) Given that the two dice land on different numbers, find the
conditional probability that at least one die is a 6.

We roll two fair 6-sided dice, A and B. Each one of the 36
possible outcomes is assumed to be equally likely.
a. Find the probability that dice A is larger than dice B.
b. Given that the roll resulted in a sum of 5 or less, ﬁnd the
conditional probability that the two dice were equal.
c. Given that the two dice land on different numbers, ﬁnd the
conditional probability that the two dice differed by 2.

Find the conditional probability, in a single roll of two fair
6-sided dice, that the sum is less than 6, given that the sum is
odd.

Hector will roll two fair, six-sided dice at the same time. Let
A = the event that at least one die lands with the number 3 facing
up. Let B = the event that the sum of the two dice is less than
5.
1. What is the correct set notation for the event that “at least
one die lands with 3 facing up and the sum of the two dice is less
than 5”? 2. Calculate the probability that...
