## What is the probability that the sum of rolling two fair six sided dice will be no more than 5?

Answer: If you roll two fair six sided dice what is the probability that the sum is 5 or lower? The easy way is to count outcomes. Of the 36 equally probable outcomes, 10 are less than or equal to 5, so the probability is **10/36 = 5/18**.

## When two fair six sided dice are rolled what is the probability that the sum of the numbers on the top faces of the dice is 6 but neither top face shows a 5?

Since there are 6 * 6 = 36 possible rolls of two dice, there are 18 rolls whose sum is even. So there are 6 possibilities for the sum to be 7. Thus, there are 18 + 6 = 24 possibilities for the sum to be even or 7. This gives a probability of 24/36 = **66.6%**.

## What is the probability of flipping tails and rolling a six?

Step-by-step explanation:

: When you flip a coin there are two possible outcomes (heads or tails) and when you roll a die there are six outcomes(1 to 6). Putting these together means you have a total of **2×6=12 outcomes**.

## What is the probability of rolling two even numbers?

Probability of both even is **12×12=14**. Given they are both even there are 3 possible even numbers: 2,4,6.

## What is the probability of spinning a 2 and rolling a 3?

There are 8 numbers for that spinner so the probability of getting a 2 out of 8 numbers is 1/8. There are 6 sides for a die so the probability of getting a 3 out of 6 sides is 1/6. Since spinning a spinner and rolling a die are Independent, the probability of both happening is 1/8 times 1/6 which is **1/48**.

## What is the probability of rolling a 5?
