Question

Two dice (each bearing numbers 1 to 6) are rolled together. Find the probability that the sum of the numbers on the upper-most faces of two dice is: 

4 or 5 

Solution

When two dice are rolled, total number of possible outcomes=36 

Favorable outcomes for the sum of numbers 4 or 5 are :  

{(1,3),(1,4),(2,2),(2,3)(3,1)(3,2)(4,1)} 

Number of favorable outcomes =7 

p(getting a sum of 4 or 5)=`7/36 `
