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 probability of rolling a two total with two dice?
Probabilities for the two dice
|Total||Number of combinations||Probability|
What is the probability of rolling a 1 both times?
since there is a 1/6 chance of rolling a 1, you need to multiply that every time you role again so 6 x 6 = 36. the odds of rolling a 1 twice are 1/36.
What is the probability of not rolling two even numbers?
So just getting two even dice (not necessarily equal), has a 1/2 ×1/2 = 1/4 (25%) chance. Lets answer the question slightly differently now. What about two identical even numbers? If the dice is six sided, only 50% of the first dice fulfill the requirement of being even (2,4,6).
How do you find the probability of two dice?
If you want to know how likely it is to get a certain total score from rolling two or more dice, it’s best to fall back on the simple rule: Probability = Number of desired outcomes ÷ Number of possible outcomes.
What is the probability of rolling a 7 or 11 with two dice?
What about 7 OR 11? There are 6 x 6 or 36 options, all are equally likely, 7 occurs 6 times, so the chances are 6/36 or 1/6. 11 occurs 2 times so chances are 2/36 or 1/18. 7 or 11 are 8 of the 36 options so 8/36 or 2/9.
When two dice are rolled the maximum total on the two faces of the dice will be?
Answer: When two dice are thrown simultaneously, thus number of event can be 62 = 36 because each die has 1 to 6 number on its faces.
What’s the probability that your second roll is a 6 given that first roll is a 6 already?
1 Answer. As other people have pointed out in comments, the correct answer to the question “what is the probability of rolling another 6 given that I have rolled a 6 prior to it?” is indeed 16. This is because the die rolls are assumed (very reasonably so) to be independent of each other.
What is the probability of rolling 2 sixes in a row?
Of the 1/6 portion of first rolls that yield a 6, 1/6 of those second rolls will yield a 6- so the total probability of rolling 2 sixes is 1/36.
