 Question 287835: If you roll a pair of numbered cubes, each with the digits 1 through 6, what is the probability of rolling a sum of 7? a 1/6 b 1/12 c 7/12 d 1/36 e 7/36Answer by Grinnell(63)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The answer is one over 6 or 1/6. Remember your multiplication table? Now listen carefully. We are going to have as a paradigm a Dice probability table. Go across write (space it out) 1 thru 6. Now go down, 1 thru 6. Now you have something similar to the frame of a multiplication table. Now fill in... 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 1,1 1,2 1,6 2 2,1 2,2 2,5 3 3,1 3,2 3,4 4 4,3 5 5,2 6 6,1 Fill all these in. Fill ALL of these in. I did the obvious for you. Learn this new paradigm (table) when dealing with dice!!!!!!!!! 1/6 is the answer---the table yields 36 entries. Complete this table!!!!!!!! The table DID NOT TURN OUT AT ALL. BUT DO A MULTIPLICATION-LIKE TABLE .
