When a die is thrown twice, there are **36 possible outcomes**.

## What are the outcomes of throwing a die two times?

We know that in a single thrown of two die, the total number of possible outcomes is (6 × 6) = **36**. Let S be the sample space.

## When a die is thrown twice then the results of both throw are?

When we throw a die, there are 6 outcomes. When we throw 2 dies together, there are **6x6=36 outcomes**.

## When a die is thrown twice then n S?

In a simultaneous throw of two dice, we have **n(S)=(6⋅6)=36**.

## What is the probability of getting a doublet when a die is thrown twice?

We know that the favourable outcomes are (2, 2), (4, 4), and (6, 6). So, the number of favourable outcomes is 3. We know that the number of possible outcomes is 36. Thus, the probability of getting a doublet of an even number is =**336=112**.

### What is the probability that both numbers comes up are even?

Probability of both even is **12×12=14**. Given they are both even there are 3 possible even numbers: 2,4,6.

### When a die is thrown once what is the probability of getting a multiple of 3?

Hence, the probability of getting a multiple of 3 when a die is thrown is 1/3.

### What is the probability of getting 5 at least once if we throw two dice simultaneously?

The probability of obtaining a total score of 5 is 1) 1/9 2) 1/18 3) 1/36 4) 1/12. Therefore, the required probability = **4/ 36 = 1/9**.

### What's the probability of rolling the same number twice?

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). Another way to think about it is that you don't care what the first number is, you just need the second number to match it (with probability 1/6 ).

### What is the probability of rolling a 5 twice?

5 Answers. so the probability of (YES) rolling a 5 is 36/36 - 25/36 = **11/36 with** two rolls....

### What is the probability of rolling 2 sixes in a row?

The probability of rolling two sixes on two rolls is **16** as likely as one six in one roll.

### What is the probability that when two dice are thrown the result does not add to 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 getting multiple of 3?

Answer: The probability of getting a multiple of 3 is therefore = n(E)/n(S) = 2/6 =**1/3**.

### What is the probability of getting a number that is a multiple of 3?

∴ P (a multiple of 3) = 2/6 = **1/3**.

### What is the probability of getting an even number and a multiple of 3?

(iii) An even number or a multiple of 3 is obtained in any of the following outcomes 2, 3, 4, 6. So, favourable number of cases = 4. (iv) An even number and a multiple of 3 is obtained if you get 6 as an outcome. So, favourable number of cases = **1**.

### What is the probability of getting a number 5 If a dice is tossed once?

Solution: Total number of outcomes when die is thrown twice = 6 × 6 = 36. The probability that 5 will not come up either time is 25/36 and the probability that 5 will come up is **11/36**.

### What is the probability of 1?

A probability of 1 means **that the event will happen**. If the probability of a road traffic accident was 1 there would be nothing you could do to stop it. It will happen. In practice probabilities associated with everyday life events lie somewhere between 0 and 1.

### What is the probability of getting 1 and 5 If a dice is thrown once?

So they are mutually exclusive events, therefore their probabilities add to 1. By symmetry we expect that each face is equally likely to appear and so each has probability = **1/6**. The outcome of a 5 is one of those events and so has probability = 1/6 of appearing.

### What is the probability of an odd number?

The probability that the score is odd is equal to one-half or **one in two**.

### Which is the odd number?

The odd numbers from 1 to 100 are: 1, **3**, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, 83, 85, 87, 89, 91, 93, 95, 97, 99.

### What is the chance of getting sum of 15?

Probability of a sum of 15: 10/216 = **4.6%**

### What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?

Adding these two independent probabilities, the chance of rolling either a 7 or 11 is **16+118=29**.

### What is the probability of getting a sum of 7 if two dice are thrown?

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**.
