Rollin for dubs- check em

1/6 chance for rolling the first six. 1/6 chance for rolling the second one (independantly). when doing compound probability problems like this you multiply the chances of each soooo

1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36 chance of rolling dubs sixes (or any other number for that matter)

### What is the probability that none of the rolls is a six?

It depends on what size die you use, what its labels are and how
many rolls you make. For example using a standard six-sided die and
one roll, the probability of no sixes is 5/6 or ~0.83; the
probability of no sixes with 25 rolls is less than 0.01 or 1%. If
you used a standard d3 (three-sided die) then the probability will
always be 1 or 100%, since rolling a six is impossible; but if
every side has '6' on...

### What is the probability of rolling a six on a number cube and then rolling another six?

Probability = favorable outcomes / total chances of outcome
To find probability of two events happening favorably in
succession (like you wanting to roll two sixes in a row), you
simply multiply the probably of rolling both sixes together.
Thus, (1/6) * (1/6) = 1/36
You have a 1 in 36 chance of rolling two sixes in a row

###### Asked in Probability

### A dice is rolled six times in succession what is the probability of rolling six sixes?

The chance that one dice falls on 6 is 1 out of 6. The
probability that dice falls twice in a row is 1 out of 6 and 1 out
of 6, that is (1/6)(1/6)=(1/6)^2=1/36.
Hence the probability of six sixes in a row is
(1/6)^6=1 out of 46,656.

###### Asked in Probability

### If a die is tossed 5 times what is the probability of getting at least 2 sixes?

At least 2 sixes mean 2,3,4, or 5 sixes. This is the sum of the
probability of 2 sixes + probability of 3 sixes etc. It is easier
to look at the probability of 0 or 1 six and subtract that the sum
of those two from 1. P( one six)=1/6 P(number other than six)=5/6
P( one six in 5 tosses)=(1/6)(5/6)^4=625/7776 P (no six in 5
tosses) the probability of not getting a 6 of the first toss is 5/6

### What is prior classical probability?

When you throw a die, there are six possibilities. The
probability of a number from 1 to 6 is 1/6. This is classical
probability. Compare this with empirical probability. If you throw
a die 100 times and obtain 30 sixes, the probability of obtaining a
6 is 30/100 or 0.3. Empirical probabilities change whereas
classical probability doesn't.

### What is the difference between an outcome and an event?

An outcome is the result of a single trial. For example, if I
roll a die, one outcome would be a six. An event is a collection of
one or more outcomes. Using the example of rolling a die, an event
might be rolling two sixes in a row. Thus this event is comprised
of two outcomes - rolling and six and rolling another six.
