Solution

If two dices are thrown simultaneously, then all the possible outcomes = 62 = 36
∴ Total  number of possible outcome, n(S) = 36
Let A = event where the the total of the numbers on the dices is greater than 10
Then the favourable outcomes are as follows:
A = {(5, 6), (6, 5), (6, 6)}
Number of favourable outcomes, n(A) = 3
Hence, required probability, P(A) = P (total of the numbers on the dices is greater than 10) =  \[\frac{3}{36} = \frac{1}{12}\]
