## How many outcomes are there when rolling dice two times?

Note that there are **36 possibilities** for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 dice?

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%) |

## When two dice are thrown the total outcomes are?

We know that the total number of possible outcomes when two dice are thrown is =**6×6=36**.

## What is the probability of rolling 2 sixes in a row?

The probability of rolling two sixes on two rolls is **16** as likely as one six in one roll.
