## What is the probability both dice land on the same number?

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). The probability of rolling any number twice in a row is 1/6, because there are six ways to roll a specific number twice in a row (6 x 1/36).

## What is the average number of sixes in 100 rolls?

the probability of rolling a 6 on a fair die is 1/6, so that we expect 100 × 1/6 = **16.7 ≈ 17 6’s** to be rolled.

## What is the probability of rolling a 2 on a six-sided die How is probability used in the study of genetics?

Probability of rolling 2 is **1/6**. Probability of rolling 2 twice is 1/36. In genetics probability principles are applied to determine the probability of phenotypes and genotypes based on the number of possible outcomes of allele pairings.

## 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.
