## What is the probability that both dice show the same number explain?

If you throw two (unbiased, six sided) dice (with faces numbered 1–6), the probability that they show the same number is **1/6**. The first die can be any number; the second die must match the first.

## What is the probability that both will show six?

So to get a 6 when rolling a six-sided die, probability = 1 ÷ 6 = 0.167, or **16.7 percent** chance. So to get two 6s when rolling two dice, probability = 1/6 × 1/6 = 1/36 = 1 ÷ 36 = 0.0278, or 2.78 percent.

## When rolling 2 d10 at the same time what is the probability of getting the same number for both dice?

Therefore probability of obtaining a two or greater in any one roll or both rolls is 36/36 (total probability of all outcomes) – **1/36**.

## What are the total possible outcomes when two dice are thrown together?

We know that the total number of possible outcomes when two dice are thrown is =**6×6=36**.

## What is the probability of getting a number as 3 if two dice is thrown?

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 is the probability of getting a number at least 5?

Probability of rolling more than a certain number (e.g. roll more than a 5).

Roll more than a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 4/6 (66.67%) |

3 | 3/6 (50%) |

4 | 4/6 (66.667%) |

5 | 1/6 (66.67%) |

## What is the probability that 5 will come up at least 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 getting the sum as an even number when two dice are thrown?

If both are even (2,4,6), we also get an even result. This probability of this happening is also 0.5*0.5=0.25. Meaning the total probability of getting an even sum is **0.25*0.25=1**.
