## When two dice are rolled what is the probability that one die is a 4 Given that the sum of the two die is nine?

The probability is 3+4+1 over 36. That’s **8/36**, simplified to 2/9.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability of getting a sum of 8?

Therefore theprobability that we get the sum as8 when two dice are thrown is **5/36**.

## What is the probability that when two dice are rolled the sum of the numbers on the two dice is 7?

For each of the possible outcomes add the numbers on the two dice and count how many times this sum is 7. If you do so you will find that the sum is 7 for 6 of the possible outcomes. Thus the sum is a 7 in 6 of the 36 outcomes and hence the probability of rolling a 7 is **6/36 = 1/6**.

## When a pair of dice is rolled in how many ways can the sum of the two numbers be?

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.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 9 when two dice are thrown simultaneously?

probability **4/36 or 1/9**. In order to get a sum of 9 with two dice, you would have to roll the pairs 4 & 5, 5 & 4, 3 & 6, or 6 & 3.
