# Two Dice Are Thrown Together. the Probability of Getting the Same Number on the Both Dice is - Mathematics

MCQ

Two dice are thrown together. The probability of getting the same number on the both dice is

• 1/2

• 1/3

• 1/6

• 1/12

#### Solution

Total number of outcomes = 36.

Getting the same number on both the dice means (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5) and (6, 6).

Numbers of favourable outcomes = 6.

∴ P(getting the same number on both dice) =("Number of favourable outcomes")/"Number of all possible outcomes"

=6/36 = 1/6

Thus, the probability of getting the same number on both dice is 1/6.

Hence, the correct answer is option 1/6.
