## What is the probability of rolling two six sided dice and obtaining matching numbers?

8 Answers. The probability of rolling a specific number twice in a row is indeed **1/36**, because you have a 1/6 chance of getting that number on each of two rolls (1/6 x 1/6).

## What is the probability of rolling two six sided dice at the same time and obtaining a 2 and a 3?

So the probability of rolling a 2 and a 3 would be 1/36 + 1/36 = 2/36 or **1/18**. There is only one way to roll two 6’s on a pair of dice: the first die must be a 6 and the second die must be a 6.

## What is the probability of rolling two dice and getting an odd sum?

The odds of rolling an odd number from the sum of two rolls requires that we roll one even number from one die and an odd number from another die. The odds of this happening are **12**. After several runs, I keep getting the answer of 61% – Therefore this is showing that both answers are incorrect.

## What is the probability of getting a 7 when rolling 2 dice?

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 when rolling two 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**.

## What is the probability that the sum is 6?

Probability of getting a total of 6 = **5/36**.
