MCQ

A die is rolled twice What is the probability that the sum of the numbers on the two faces is 5?

• 3/13

• 4/13

• 6/13

• 1/9

When a dice is rolled twice

Total sample space = 36

Sample space that sum of the number appear is 5 = (1, 4) (2, 3) (4, 1) (3, 2)

i.e. n(E) = 4 ∴ P(E) = 4/36 = 1/9
