## When the die is rolled twice then the number possible outcomes are?

When a die is thrown twice, there are 36 possible outcomes.

**How many outcomes are possible in rolling a die 2 times?**

36 outcomes

Why do we know, without listing them all, that there are 36 outcomes when two dice are rolled? We can view the outcomes as two separate outcomes, that is, the outcome of rolling die number one and the outcome of rolling die number two.

### What is the probability of getting a multiple of 2 in rolling a die?

R D Sharma – Mathematics 9 So, probability of rolling a multiple of 2 with one toss of a number cube is 1/3.

**What is the probability of getting a multiple of 2 or 3 when a die is thrown?**

Answer: 2/3 is the probability.

## What is the probability of 2 or 3?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 2/36 (5.556%) |

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

**What is the probability of rolling a die?**

Since there are six possible outcomes, the probability of obtaining any side of the die is 1/6. The probability of rolling a 1 is 1/6, the probability of rolling a 2 is 1/6, and so on. But what happens if we add another die?

### How to determine the probability of a dice roll?

To correctly determine the probability of a dice roll, we need to know two things: In probability, an event is a certain subset of the sample space. For example, when only one die is rolled, as in the example above, the sample space is equal to all of the values on the die, or the set (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

**What is the probability of showing a 3 on the first roll?**

Since the occurrence of 3 on first roll is independent of the occurrence of an odd number on the second roll, Probability of complete event = (probability of showing a 3 on the first roll) x (probability of an odd number on the second roll)=1/6×1/2=1/12. These are independent events, that is the first roll has no impact on the second roll.

## What’s the probability of getting any side of the die?

Since there are six possible outcomes, the probability of obtaining any side of the die is 1/6. The probability of rolling a 1 is 1/6, the probability of rolling a 2 is 1/6 and so on for 3, 4, 5, and 6.
