## What is the probability of rolling on a pair dice getting zero?

Answer: With a standard die (unbiased, 6 faces numbered 1–6), no possible roll will yield a 0. Hence the **probability is 0**.

## When two dice are rolled what is the probability that the difference between the two numbers is 5?

To find the probability determine the number of successful outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes overall. Each dice has six combinations which are independent. Therefore the number of possible outcomes will be 6*6 = 36. The probability of rolling a pair of dice whose numbers add to 5 is **4/36 = 1/9**.

## What is the probability of getting a 0?

A probability of 0 means **that the event will not happen**. For example, if the chance of being involved in a road traffic accident was 0 this would mean it would never happen. You would be perfectly safe. A probability of 1 means that the event will happen.

## What is probability of rolling two dice?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

2 | 1 | 2.78% |

3 | 2 | 5.56% |

4 | 3 | 8.33% |

5 | 4 | 11.11% |

## What are all the possible outcomes of rolling 2 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.

## 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 of rolling the difference of 4?

Probability of rolling less than certain number with one die

Roll less than a… | Probability |
---|---|

1 | 0/6 (0%) |

2 | 1/6 (16.667%) |

3 | 2/6 (33.33%) |

4 | 3/6 (50%) |

## What is the probability of getting the sum at least 9?

The probability of getting 9 as the sum when 2 dice are thrown is **1/9**.

## What is the probability of getting a sum of 6?

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