∴ Total number of possible outcomes = 36

We know

Probability of an event`"Favourable number of outcomes"/"Total number of outcomes"`

The outcomes favourable to the event 'the sum of the numbers on two dice to be 5' denoted by E are (1, 4), (2, 3), (4, 1) and (3, 2).

Total number of favourable outcomes = 4

`:.P(E)=4/36=1/9`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
