What is the probability of rolling a five with a pair of dice?

There are 36 possible outcomes when we roll a pair of dice. Rolling a five can be done the following ways: 3-2, 4-1, 2-3 and 1-4. That's four ways to roll a five with one roll of the dice. The odds of rolling a five are 4 in 36, or 1 in 9. That makes the probability of rolling a five equal to 0.11111....We know that the probability of something is a ratio of the number of times it can be done to the total number of things that are possible. Probabilities range from zero to one, inclusive. If something has a probability of zero, it cannot happen. Like rolling a 13. A 13 cannot be rolled with one roll of a pair of standard dice. Thus the probability of rolling a 13 is zero, as it cannot happen.If something has a probability of one, it must happen. Like the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of a pair of dice. Since any number we roll must be either odd or even, then the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of a pair of dice is one. An odd or an even number must turn up, and that is why the probability of rolling an odd or an even number with one roll of the dice is one. Lastly, we've seen that the probability of rolling a given number with one roll of the dice is the number of times that number might appear divided by the total number of possibilities that might appear.


What is the probability of not rolling sum of 6 with two fair dice?

The probability of not rolling a sum of six with two fair dice is 1 minus the probability of rolling a sum of six. There are 36 permutations of rolling two dice. Of these, five sum to six, 1+5, 2+4, 3+3, 4+2, and 5+1. The probability, then of rolling a sum of six is 5 in 36. The probability, then of not rolling a sum of six is 31 in 36, or about 0.8611.


What are the probabilities of rolling a a five with one dice?

Rolling the dice once will result in any one of the six numbers having the same probability of being up. The probability of getting a '5' = 1/6, the same as getting a '1.' ============================


What is the probability of rolling a number less than five on a standard number cube?

There is a 4 in 6 (or 2 in 3) probability of rolling a number less than a five on a standard number cube.


What is the probability of getting a number under five?

There is insufficient information in the question to properly answer it. "Getting a number under five doing what?" rolling dice? turning a spinner? drawing a card? Please restate the question.


What is the probability of getting a sum less than five when rolling dice?

There are 36 permutations of two dice. Of these, 6 have a sum less than five, 1+1, 1+2, 1+3, 2+1, 2+2, and 3+1. The probability, then, of rolling a sum less than five on two dice is 6 in 36, or 1 in 6, or about 0.1667.


What are the odds of rolling 6 same numbers in a six sided die?

The probability of rolling the same number six times on a standard die is (1 in 6)5 or 1 in 7776, or about 0.0001286. The reason the exponent above is five instead of six is that the probability of rolling "some" number on one die is 1, so you need to look at the probability of the other five dice matching the first die. It would not matter if you rolled one die six times, or six dice one time. The odds are the same.



When two dice are rolled what is the probability that both will be a five?

if you multiply the number of rolls you did you will get the answer


Which is bigger the probability of 2 fours or the probability of 1 five or 1 six?

It depends upon how you are picking these numbers. Let's say you are rolling two dice. The probability of rolling 2 fours is 1 in 36. The probability of exactly 1 five is 10 in 36, while the probability of at least 1 five is 11 in 36. The probability of exactly 1 six is 10 in 36, while the probability of at least 1 six is 11 in 36. The probability of at least 1 five or 1 six is 19 in 36. The probability of exactly 1 five or six is 15 in 36. So no matter how you look at it, with dice rolling, the probability of 1 five or 1 six is bigger than the probability of 2 fours. However, if you are picking numbers from a hat, then the probabilities are different.


What are the odds of rolling 5 of akind with 5 dice?

The odds of rolling five of a kind with five dice is 1 in 1296. The first die is going to roll something, so the odds are 1 in 1. Each of the other dice have a probability of 1 in 6 of matching the first die, so the resultant probability is (1 in 1) times (1 in 6) to the fourth power.


What are the odds of rolling one five with four dice?

The probability that there will be EXACTLY one five when four dice are rolled is 500/1296 = 125/324, or about 38.58%. The odds are 199 to 125 against, or about 8 to 5. The probability that there will be AT LEAST one five when four dice are rolled is 671/1296, or about 51.77%. The odds are 625 to 671 against, or about 14 to 15.


What is the probability of rolling a sum which is a multiple of five?

There are 36 permutations of rolling two standard dice. Of them, four (1+4, 2+3, 3+2, and 4+1) sum to five, and three (6+4, 5+5, and 4+6) sum to ten. The probability, then of rolling a multiple of five is 7 in 36, or about 0.1944.


What are the odds of rolling six sixes with five dice?

Zero. If you roll five dice, you cannot get six 6s.


What is the probability of rolling the same number on two dice?

We'll assume standard six-sided dice. The first die rolls... well, whatever it rolls. It doesn't really matter what the specific number is. The second die can come up any of six different ways. One of those ways is with the same number as the first, the other five are different. So the chances of rolling two dice and getting the same number on both is 1/6.



If two twelve side fair dice are rolled what it the probability that the total number of spots shown is equal to 5?

If two twelve side fair dice are rolled, there are 144 possible outcomes. Of those 144 outcomes, there are four (1-4, 2-3, 3-2, and 4-1) that add up to five, So the probability of rolling a sum of five is 4 in 144, or 1 in 36.



What is the event space for rolling the sum of 8 with two dice?

There are 36 permutations of rolling two dice. Of these, there are five that add up to a sum of 8...6+25+34+43+52+6This translates to an event (or sample) space of {62, 53, 44, 35, 26}.The probability, then, of rolling a sum of 8 on two dice is 5 in 36, or about 0.1389.


What is the probability of rolling a number that is divisble by 3 or a 5?

Rolling a single die: Six values are possible. Only five is divisible by five; both three and six and divisible by three; making three possibilities. Therefore, the required probability is 3/6 = 0.5.


What is the probability of rolling a 5 on one dice 2 times?

The probability would be that of independently rolling a five once, multiplied by the same probability for a second time.The two rolls are treated independently with P(5) = probability of rolling a single '5' = 1/6.P(5,5) = Probability of rolling one 5 and then another 5, out of two rollsp(5,5)=p(5 AND 5)=p(5)*p(5)=(1/6)*(1/6)=1/36So it's 1/36, or 0.0278


What is the probability of rolling a number below 6?

One die: There are six possibilities and five of them are less than six. Therefore, the probability is 5 out of 6 or 5/6.


What is the probability that two dice add up to five with one toss?

With fair regular dice, the answer is 4/36 = 1/9


What is the probability of getting a sum of five when rolling 2 dice nine times?

A single roll of 2 dice can come up in (6 x 6) = 36 ways. A sum of five is made with 1 and 4, 4 and 1 2 and 3, 3 and 2 four out of the 36. The probability is (4/36)= 1/9 on each roll. If each roll is perfectly random, then the probability of getting a 5 in 9 rolls is 100%.


If you roll two dice what is the probability of the event that you roll a total of five on the two dice?

uummm!!!! The probability would maybe close to 5 or 4. * * * * * The answer is clearly incorrect because the probability of an event cannot be greater than 1. The actual probability, assuming the dice are fair, is 4/36 = 1/9 = 11.11...%
