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: 

more than 10

Solution

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

Favorable outcome for the sum of number more than 10.i.e. 11 or 12 are : 

{(5,6)(6,5)(6,6)} 

Number of favourable outcomes = 3 

p(getting a sum of number more than 10) = `3/36=1/12` 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
