ConceptType of Event - Complementry

#### Question

Two dice are thrown at the same time. Find the probability that the sum of the two numbers appearing on the top of the dice is:

8

#### Solution

The number of possible outcomes =6xx6=36

The outcomes favourble to the event the sum of the two number is 8=E={(2,6),(3,5),(4,4),(5,3),(6,2)}

The number of outcomes favourable to E= n(E) = 5

Hence, p(E)=(n(E))/(n(S))=5/36`
