## What is the probability of rolling a 7 with 2 die?

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**.

## What is the probability of rolling a total of 7 with two dice at least once in 10 rolls?

With the help of a calculator we find that we will not get a total of 7 on any of the first 10 rolls approximately 16.15% of the time. This implies that we will get a total of 7 on at least one of the first 10 rolls 100%−16.15%=**83.85%** of the time.

## How many ways can you get 7?

There is an equal probability of rolling each of the numbers 1-6.

…

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 |
