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.

## Related Questions The probability of any one number on a die being rolled is 1/6 or 16.67%. Assuming as the die is rolled, and its a 6-sided die (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, &amp; 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 &amp; girl or heads &amp; tails, will have the 50 50 probability. The probability of a one being rolled in a fair die is 1 in 6, or 0.1666... . The probability of a one not being rolled is 5 in 6, or 0.8333... . The probability, then, of exactly one one being rolled in nine rolls is 1 in 6 times 5 in 6 to the 8th power, or about 0.0388. The question depends on what the numbers are being rolled on: a hexahedron or some other shape.  On a normal cube, the probability is 0. If there are more than 1 cubes, the answer depends on how many are being rolled for each sum. No, we can't expression any negative value as a probability. A probability ranges from 0 to 1 - 0 being the lowest and 1 being the highest.  That would depend entirely upon what it is that is being rolled. Even if I assume that you mean probability and not probility, the question cannot be answered since there is no information as to what is being rolled. For a normal tetrahedral die, the answer is 1. Probability is desired options over total options. There are 6 faces on a standard dice, so NOT rolling a 5 is 5/6. 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... 1/3. To be exact, the 6 side has more holes than the others, and is therefore lighter and has a higher chance of being rolled.  The answer depends on what you mean by "do". Does it mean calculate individually, calculate the probability of either one or the other (or both), calculate the probability of both, calculate some function of both (for example the sum of two dice being rolled)? 1 in 9. Since there are 36 (6x6) possible combinations, and 4 of them (1+4, 4+1, 2+3, 3+2) will produce a sum of 5, the probability is 4 in 36, or 1 in 9. A multiple of 6 because you can get a 6 and 6, a 1 and 5, a 2 and 4, and a 3 and 3. The only factors you can get are 2, 3, and 6. When a tetrahedral die is rolled, it will rest with three faces upwards. If the die is numberd from 1 to 4. therefore the sum of the upward facing numbers on 1 die is at least 6 and so for two dice, the minimum is 12. That being the case, the probability is 0. It depends on the numbers on the 4 sided die. I don't believe that is a recognised standard.

EXPERIMENTAL PROBABILITYExperimental probability refers to the probability of an event occurring when an experiment was conducted.)In such a case, the probability of an event is being determined through an actual experiment. Mathematically,Experimental probability=Number of event occurrencesTotal number of trialsFor example, if a dice is rolled 6000 times and the number '5' occurs 990 times, then the experimental probability that '5' shows up on the dice is 990/6000 = 0.165.On the other hand, theoretical probability is determined by noting all the possible outcomes theoretically, and determining how likely the given outcome is. Mathematically,Theoretical probability=Number of favorable outcomesTotal number of outcomesFor example, the theoretical probability that the number '5' shows up on a dice when rolled is 1/6 = 0.167. This is because of the 6 possible outcomes (dice showing '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6'), only 1 outcome (dice showing '5') is favorable.As the number of trials keeps increasing, the experimental probability tends towards the theoretical probability. To see this, the number trials should be sufficiently large in number.Experimental probability is frequently used in research and experiments of social sciences, behavioral sciences, economics and medicine.In cases where the theoretical probability cannot be calculated, we need to rely on experimental probability.For example, to find out how effective a given cure for a pathogen in mice is, we simply take a number of mice with the pathogen and inject our cure.We then find out how many mice were cured and this would give us the experimental probability that a mouse is cured to be the ratio of number of mice cured to the total number of mice tested.In this case, it is not possible to calculate the theoretical probability. We can then extend this experimental probability to all mice.It should be noted that in order for experimental probability to be meaningful in research, the sample size must be sufficiently large.In our above example, if we test our cure on 3 mice and all of these are cured, then the experimental probability that a mouse is cured is 1. However, the sample size is too small to conclude that the cure works in 100% of the cases.R\ Assuming then that there are 100 numbers, 1-100, the probability of the number 23 being randomly picked out of 100 is: 1/100 or 0.01. Between the numbers of 0 and 1, 0 being never and 1 being definite
