## What is a most likely outcome of a dice?

When rolling multiple dice, the most likely result is **the sum of the average (or the nearest whole numbers to that sum)**.

## What are the possible outcomes when we roll a dice?

Note that there are **36 possibilities** for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## Is rolling a die an outcome?

A compound event is an event with **more than one outcome**. For example, in rolling one six-sided die, rolling an even number could occur with one of three outcomes: 2, 4, and 6. When you roll a six-sided die many times, you should not expect any outcome to happen more often than another (assuming that it is a fair die).

## How do you find most likely outcomes?

The most likely outcome is for **N=2 heads, where the curve reaches its maximum value**. This is just what you would expect: if each coin is equally likely to land heads as tails, in four flips, half should come up heads, that is N = 4x(1/2) = 2 is the most likely outcome.

## When a die is rolled the six possible outcomes?

When a die is rolled, then the six possible outcomes are **1,2,3,4,5 and 6**.

## What is the most common number to roll with 1 dice?

, and the least common rolls are 2 and 12, both with probability 1/36. For three six-sided dice, the most common rolls are **10 and 11**, both with probability 1/8; and the least common rolls are 3 and 18, both with probability 1/216.

## What sum is most likely to occur from rolling a pair of dice?

Since each die has 6 values, there are 6∗6=36 6 ∗ 6 = 36 total combinations we could get. If you add up the numbers in the total column above, you’ll get 36.
