 Question 129607: Given two six sided dice, compute the probability of rolling a nine.Answer by HyperBrain(694)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Ok! Hello this is HyperBrain. Let d1 be the first dice and d2 be the second dice. As we all know, a die has 6 numbers (1,2,3,4,5,6) So D1 can produce 1,2,3,4,5, or a 6. Same as for D2 So, here are the possible combinations Now, i will highlight the ones that have the sum of 9. Now, the formula! tandandan! PRObability=(no. of highlighted cells)/(total no. of cells) =4/36=1/9 Power up, HyperBrain!
