Two six sided dice are rolled which number has the lowest probability of being rolled?
If two six sided fair dice are rolled, the sum of the result of both dice that has the
lowest probability to come up is 2 and 12. P(2) = 1/36. P(12) = 1/36.
After a die has been rolled shouldn't the probability be 50 50 for any given outcome it either is or it isn't so it is a certain number should have the probability 1 2 More semantics than math?
Assuming as the die is rolled, and its a 6-sided die (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6), each number has a 1/6 probability of being rolled. The probability of any number being rolled is 1/6 and the probability of not rolling that number is 5/6. Something that has only 2 outcomes, such as boy & girl or heads & tails, will have the 50 50 probability.
It is: 1/6 Since a die is cubic in shape and has 6 sides, and there is an equal probability of getting any one of them facing up (assuming the die is not loaded), and there is only one number on a die greater than 5, that being 6, the probability of rolling such a number is therefore 1 in 6, or .1666...
