Refer to this experiment and find the probability of the given event. The sum of the numbers is an odd number.Answer by Edwin McCravy(8908)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` It's obvious that half the possible rolls will have an odd sum and the other half will have an even sum. So the probability is obviously . Or another way to explain it is: The rolls colored red below have an odd sum and so the probability of rolling one of the red rolls is 18 out of the 36 possible rolls which is which reduces to : ⚀⚀ ⚀⚁ ⚀⚂ ⚀⚃ ⚀⚄ ⚀⚅ ⚁⚀ ⚁⚁ ⚁⚂ ⚁⚃ ⚁⚄ ⚁⚅ ⚂⚀ ⚂⚁ ⚂⚂ ⚂⚃ ⚂⚄ ⚂⚅ ⚃⚀ ⚃⚁ ⚃⚂ ⚃⚃ ⚃⚄ ⚃⚅ ⚄⚀ ⚄⚁ ⚄⚂ ⚄⚃ ⚄⚄ ⚄⚅ ⚅⚀ ⚅⚁ ⚅⚂ ⚅⚃ ⚅⚄ ⚅⚅ Edwin ```
