## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 9 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

7 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

8 | 5/36 (13.889%) |

9 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

10 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

## How many ways can you get a sum of 9?

So in total there are **25 ways** to get a sum of 9. If you want the probability, just take this over the total number of possibilities and you get 25/63=25/216.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability that the sum is either 7 or 11?

2 Answers. The probability is **25%** .

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 10 when a dice is rolled twice?

Answer: **3/36** is the answer.

## When we throw a dice then what is the probability of getting the number greater than 5?

The chance for a result greater than 5 is therefore **1 out of 6**. If you meant 2 dice, a similar analysis is that there are 36 possible results and the chances for a result greater than 5 is 26 out of 36.

## Which is more likely rolling a total of 9 when two six sided dice are rolled or rolling a total of 9 when three six sided dice are rolled?

Which is more likely, rolling a total of 9 when two dice are rolled or rolling a total of 9 when three dice are rolled? Answer: 9 = 3+6 = 4+5 = 5+4 = 6+3, — 4 ways to get total of 9 points rolling two dice, so the probability that the outcome is 9 points is: 4/(6*6) = 1/9 = **0.111**.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 standard dice which sum to 9 as a fraction?

When 2 dice are thrown, the probability of the sum being 9 is **1/9**.

## What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7 on a standard pair of six sided dice?

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**.
