# In a Simultaneous Throw of a Pair of Dice, Find the Probability of Getting Neither 9 Nor 1 1 as the Sum of the Numbers on the Faces - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

ConceptProbability - A Theoretical Approach

#### Question

In a simultaneous throw of a pair of dice, find the probability of getting neither 9 nor 1 1 as the sum of the numbers on the faces

#### Solution

In a throw of pair of dice, total no of possible outcomes = 36 (6 × 6) which are

(1, 1) (1, 2) (1, 3) (1, 4) (1, 5) (1, 6)

(2, 1) (2, 2) (2, 3) (2, 4) (2, 5) (2, 6)

(3, 1) (3, 2) (3, 3) (3, 4) (3, 5) (3, 6)

(4, 1) (4, 2) (4, 3) (4, 4) (4, 5) (4, 6)

(5, 1) (5, 2) (5, 3) (5, 4) (5, 5) (5, 6)

(6, 1) (6, 2) (6, 3) (6, 4) (6, 5) (6, 6)

barE ⟶ event of getting neither 9 nor 11 as the sum of numbers on faces

E ⟶ getting either 9 or 11 as the sum of no’s on faces

No. of favorable outcomes = 6 {(3, 6) (4, 5) (5, 4) (6, 3) (5, 6) (6, 5)}

Total no. of possible outcomes = 36

We know that, Probability P(E) ="No.of favorable outcomes"/"Total no.of possible outcomes"

P(E) =6/36 =1/6
P(barE) = 1 − 𝑃 = 1 − 1/6 =5/6

Is there an error in this question or solution?
